Calgary Police Cadet Corps
The Calgary Police Cadet Corps is a youth program designed for all youth between the ages of 12-18 to experience the life of policing. The Cadets develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement and learn other skills such as leadership, citizenship, and fitness. Working with members of the Calgary Police Service, the Cadets are able to become model citizens while being mentored in an inclusive environment.
