To the Editor:
I am a graduated cadet of Ridgefield’s Junior Police Academy, and want to share how lucky I was to be able to participate in this one-week program. I learned so much about a policeman's job and was inspired to have a similar job. Before the academy, I had not known about all their different specialties, including canine patrol, detective unit, and bike officers. We were challenged to solve a crime and learned how to lift fingerprints, along with other useful skills that might be helpful someday.
