(BLOOMINGTON) – The IU Police Academy recruits will have their annual blood drive Wednesday in honor of fallen officers.
The 43 recruits in the IU Police Academy’s 46th session have a goal of collecting at least 43 pints.
Anyone interested in donating is asked to make an appointment. Appointments are available from 3:05 p.m. until 6:50 p.m. June 5.
The blood drive takes place in the parking lot adjacent to IUPD-Bloomington, 1469 E. 17th St.
This is the 46th summer for the IU Police Academy, where IU students receive education and training on more than 90 topics, totaling more than 600 hours of instruction with more than 16 examinations. When they graduate after 14 weeks, they are sworn in as IUPD officers and work part time on their campus while completing their IU degrees.
The academy is a satellite of the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. The blood drive is a community service project for the recruits.
