Cadet Academy


The UC Davis Cadet Academy is a great opportunity for UC Davis juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent UC Davis graduates interested in law enforcement, forensics, criminology and array of other related professions.

The Police Cadet program provides all participants with training and experience, prior to attending a police academy. Desire to work in Law Enforcement is not required.

After a selection process, the cadet(s) will be offered paid positions as Police Officer Trainees and attend the Sacramento Police Academy. Upon completion of the police academy, the cadet(s) can be hired (if positions are available) as full Police Officers for the UC Davis Police Department.

This program is for UC Davis students ONLY.
