Sarasota, Florida -- In Sarasota, pint-sized police officers were on duty Wednesday.

Today was the inaugural Junior Law Enforcement Academy Day, which meant 30 children got to check out how it works and get a tour behind the scenes of the Sarasota Police Department.

Academy members even had the chance to take part in a SWAT challenge and try on equipment like a Bomb Suit. There were other specialty units on hand including Marine Patrol and Dive Team, Criminalistics, K9 and Emergency Response Team throughout the day.
