Junior Cadet Program

Junior Cadet Program

“Keepers of The Command”

Ages 12-18

 

The Junior Cadet Program will train the youth of our county in a manner that will

promote strong, patriotic, law-abiding citizens that possess good moral character, integrity,

trustworthiness, and the desire to perform good deeds for others. This will be accomplished

by providing the knowledge and skills that will be learned as each student progresses through

the program. Each will be given the opportunity to see what they can accomplish for

themselves, with the assistance and coaching by others that know how to complete a specific

goal.

The goals of the Junior Cadet Program are:

Gain exposure to various criminal justice careers and to have positive interaction

with law enforcement professionals.

Obtain “hands-on” experience and awareness of the criminal justice system, thereby

helping to make an informed decision on a career in law enforcement or a related

field.

Receive comprehensive career focused training that in many cases qualifies for

academic credit.

Benefit from interpersonal growth through self-discipline, teamwork, challenging

experiences, and high standards of performance and personal conduct.

Enhance character development and improve physical and mental fitness.

Learn responsibility to self and others through leadership.

Serve the community by assisting their sponsoring agency in a supplementary law

enforcement and liaison capacity.

Each Junior Cadet will be a mentor to the next class of Junior Cadets. With this the best

qualities will be brought out in him/her, and have the opportunity to pass those qualities on to

future Junior Deputy candidates.
