Little Rock Police Academy Class 90 Takes Multicultural Tour

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- It's week 21 of 24 for the cadets preparing to graduate from the Little Rock Police Academy Class 90. 

On Friday, the 14 recruits spent the day on a multicultural tour of the Little Rock Central High School Museum and the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center. 

The tour gives the recruits a chance to learn about the city and history of the state.

Many say the day is an eye-opening experience.

"I'm going to take the knowledge that I have, and I'm going to be more understanding of people's reaction to my actions," says Alicia Meeker, a member of the LRPD Recruit Class 90.

"Regardless of who you are, your background, you have a different background from me and I have a different one from you, but we need respect," says Jacob Smith, a member of the LRPD Recruit Class 90.

This recruiting class will graduate August 3.
