The Beaverton Police Department’s Cadet Program is for young men and women, ages 16 to 20, with an interest in law enforcement. The Cadet Program pairs these young adults with police officers to provide hands-on career experience, team building skills and leadership development, all while having fun. The cadets participate in meetings, trainings, ride-a-longs, Oregon Liquor Control Commission Minor-in-Possession alcohol details, community events, school safety fairs, barricade drops, and peer court, to name a few.
The Cadet Program has proven to be a beneficial stepping stone for future careers in law enforcement, government officials, and community leaders. Our hope is that the police cadets will play an important part in cultivating a diverse workforce for the department’s future. We are very excited to have such a great program here in Beaverton.
