The Junior Cadets program is for youth, ages 8 through 12, who  want to know more about the law enforcement profession and receive the physical and mental preparation necessary to make the transition from Junior Cadets to the Cadet Program, or any other Department sponsored youth programs. The interaction with police officers helps young people develop a sense of personal responsibility that will help them become constructive, responsible, and productive members of the community.
