Cadet Program


The Syracuse Police Cadet Program is designed for individuals interested in becoming Syracuse Police Officers. This is a one-year paid program that includes both training and work experience opportunities. The purpose of this program is to serve as a gateway to becoming a Syracuse Police Officer. This initiative includes classroom and physical fitness training to assist individuals with successfully passing the civil service exam for police officer and the physical fitness test.

*The Cadet Program is separate from the Syracuse Regional Police Academy. All appropriate Civil Service laws, including testing, and comprehensive background checks, will still need to be completed to be eligible for hire as a Syracuse Police Officer.
