The Columbus Police Department is excited to announce the activation of their Cadet Program, which is designed for young people ages 15-20 who may be interested in law enforcement.
The Cadet Program will expose young people to all aspects of law enforcement work such as patrol, criminal investigations, traffic direction and control, emergency management, training, and public relations.
Approximately 15 youth will be accepted as Cadets after an application and interview process. Cadets will be provided the necessary uniforms, equipment, and training. They will be expected to follow rules and guidelines regarding behavior, conduct, and school work/grades.
Any costs associated with the program will be paid from a fund generated by user fees.
