Police Cadet Training & Experience

Training & Experience

During the program, the Cadet will be assigned to different units of the department:

  • Civilian Service Aids / Booking
  • Criminal Investigative Unit
  • K-9 Unit
  • Office of Community Engagement
  • Patrol
  • Police Athletic League (PAL)
  • Traffic Enforcement

The Cadet will be trained to assist police officers with non-emergency duties and responsibilities, such as traffic and parking control, taking reports of minor crimes and incidents, and providing assistance and support to the Police Bureau as needed. Cadets have no police authority, and other than writing parking tickets, will not take any enforcement actions.
