Our desire is to recruit youths representing all communities and cultural backgrounds and to increase their understanding of the job of police officers. The program is designed to expose young adults to the demands of police training and to develop better relationships between the youth of our communities and the police that serve them.
The Youth Cadet Law Enforcement Program is an intensive, one week, residential learning experience for young adults, ages 15 thru 17. The program is held at the Massachusetts State Police Academy in New Braintree.
The program is open to male and female high school students 15-17 years of age in good scholastic standing. They must be of good moral character and present a well-groomed appearance with hair neatly trimmed (males must be clean shaven). Due to the rigorous training and stress involved in a para-military type academy, those requiring special diets or having special physical needs cannot be accepted. The "Student Trooper Program" is open to all, regardless of race, color, sex, religion, or national origin.
