The Los Angeles Police Department has 21 Area Police Stations called “divisions” scattered throughout the city of Los Angeles. Each station has a Community Relations Office that offers the CADET program. Many stations also offer additional programs such as Junior Cadets, Jeopardy, or the PAL program to name a few.

In addition to the above Station Cadet Posts, we also have Satellite Cadet Posts that are usually run by Officers who are on specialized assignments. For example, we have posts ran by Traffic Officers, Metro Officers, as well as USC, LMU, and LAX Police Officers. Whether you choose to attend a Post located at a station or specialized division, the Cadet experience will be similar, yet unique!
