There is no cost for this program. Spaces are limited and it is important that candidates have an interest in law enforcement. It is a two-phase process with phase one running from October 2022 through June 2023.  In phase, two cadets will get to conduct mock traffic stops and be given the opportunity to work alongside Deputy Sheriffs.
