On Thursday, August 2nd the Waterloo Police Foundation and Waterloo Police Department and will host the 1st annual Sgt. Greenlee Cadet Academy. Just a little over two weeks ago we announced this event and within 1 ½ hours the academy was at capacity. The academy is for kids entering 5th through 7th grades. Cadets will learn about Crime Scene Investigations, the Tactical Unit, Police K9's, Major Case Investigations and more! The academy is named for the late Sgt. Robert Greenlee III, who passed away in April of this year. Sgt. Greenlee dedicated his career to shaping young minds and being an incredible role model.
Also on Thursday night, August 2nd , the Waterloo Police Foundation will host their annual Cops and Kids-Back to School event at the Waterloo Target store. Waterloo Police Officers, volunteering their time, will be paired with previously selected kids to assist them in shopping for just the right supplies to start a successful school year.
These event were created to help build positive relationships between police officers and the kids in our community. These events are fully paid for from donations to the Waterloo Police Foundation. We would especially like to thank US Bank, All Star One Transportation and Target Store-Waterloo for their continued support of the Waterloo Police Foundation.
