The Police Cadet, under the supervision of sworn or civilian personnel, performs a variety of routine and progressively difficult police clerical and technical support duties in the areas including, but not limited to: lobby reception, records, crime prevention, patrol, traffic, and property control. Employees in part-time positions are normally scheduled up to 20 hours per week.
Cadets must have equivalent to a high school diploma or recognized equivalent at time of appointment. From the time of the appointment, Cadets must be enrolled in at least 2 courses, preferably in Police Science, Administration of Justice, or Public Administration or equivalent to 6 semester or 8 quarter units at an accredited college or university. Maintenance of a 2.0 GPA minimum in such studies is required.
Many Ontario Police Cadets go on to become Police Officers with the Ontario Police Department or other law enforcement agencies. In fact, retired Police Chief Jim Doyle began his law enforcement career as an Ontario Police Cadet in September 1973!
