Thirty Alamance-Burlington School System middle school students march in the 24th year of the Junior Police Academy. The 30 cadets (21 boys and nine girls) were recommended by school resource officers, teachers and administrators. The academy started this past Monday, with the cadets going to Salemburg for the week. SROs from all ABSS middle and high schools are the instructors. Burlington police Lt. Mark Yancey and Sheriff Terry Johnson welcomed the returning students at the Police and Fire Training Center in Haw River.
