We are very proud of the Cadet Unit which is a great asset and resource to the Marion County Sheriff's Office. This Unit is comprised of youth, ages 14 1/2 to 21. The members are selected after completing a written test, an oral interview process and a thorough background investigation. Cadets must successfully complete the Sheriff's Office Cadet Academy, which are full day trainings on Saturdays, from January through March. Members must also maintain a school academic level of 2.5 or above to remain in the cadet program and must commit a minimum of twenty (20) hours per month to the program and attend monthly meetings on Monday nights.
Our volunteer Cadets are involved in many community activities and events. The program provides a valuable link between the public, our youth and the Sheriff's Office.
NOTE: Applicants are required to pass a police background check. Applicants may also be required to pass a police driving record check.
