About

The Cadet Program is designed to offer youth an opportunity to develop skills that will help them throughout their lives, while working with one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the country.  The Program is offered at each of the 21 community police stations across the city, as well as at seven specialized divisions.

Cadets are as diverse as the city they represent.  Each of them comes from different backgrounds and have different goals and paths that they are following to get there.  However, what remains the same in all Cadets is their desire to achieve excellence within their own lives and to then leverage those achievements to positively impact the community where they live.

But before someone can begin experiencing the benefits of being a Cadet, they must first meet the eligibility requirements and go through the Cadet Academy as a Recruit.
