What are Police Cadets?
Public Safety Cadets is a new, national non-profit organization founded and managed by active and retired law enforcement officers and business leaders dedicated to preparing young adults, ages 14-20 (until 21st birthday), for careers and leadership in the public safety profession.

The Minot Police Department and Ward County Sheriffs Department are proud to partner with regional high school and college students to educate them about the field of Law Enforcement. Minot Public Safety Cadets focuses on learning skills related to the Law Enforcement career while also developing leadership and teamwork qualities. The Minot Public Safety Cadets program promotes community service and community involvement by assisting with local events throughout the year. Students who participate in the Minot Public Safety Cadet program should have an interest and ability to pursue a Criminal Justice or Law Enforcement career.

Mission
Mentoring young adults to serve their communities by providing knowledge, skills and practical experiences through education and training delivered by public safety professionals that build character, physical fitness and respect for the rule of law.

Meetings
Regularly scheduled meetings are held bi-monthly on Sunday evenings at the Minot Police Department from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Other meetings and activities are planned throughout the school year and take place at different facilities around the city. Cadets are encouraged and requested to attend as many meetings and community events as possible. Meeting dates are typically set several months ahead of time to help plan though busy life schedules.
