Police Cadets

In 2006, the Hartford Police Department started its own Police Explorer Post. In 2020, Hartford Police Department changed from Exploring to Public Safety Cadets, a program for youth ages 14-20.

Purpose
The Cadet Program gives the participant an opportunity to learn about law enforcement from a different perspective, and assess it as a possible career choice. Cadet Units can participate in multiple regional and national competitions.

Hartford Cadets compete with other youth at these events to demonstrate what they have learned about law enforcement in their respective programs.

The Police Cadet Unit will also assist our officers with traffic control at special events and parades.

MISSION STATEMENT OF THE HARTFORD POLICE CADET PROGRAM IS:

To provide area youth with a better understanding of local government, its functions and responsibilities; to promote respect for the law; to provide each cadet with the opportunity to observe the operations of the police department in the discharge of its responsibility to protect and serve the citizens of Hartford; and to provide information and exploration of law enforcement career(s)
