Education/Youth Activities

Winters Police Department Cadet Program

The Winters Police Department’s Cadet Program provides personal development and leadership opportunities for young people in our community. The young men and women in the program have the chance to not only learn about law enforcement and public safety, but to make a genuine impact on their community and become role models among their peers and especially with children.

In 2019, the Cadets have represented the community in a number of events, most notably at the services for fallen Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona. I will share that I saw the cadets the morning of the services, looking amazingly professional and ready to go represent. They shined at the event and those in the Department and I could never have been prouder to have such fine young people wearing the name “Winters” on their uniforms. It was special!

Cadet positions are non- sworn volunteer positions and complement the Winters Police Volunteer Program. The goals of the Police Cadet program are to expose men and women to the various aspects of police work in order to prepare them for a career in law enforcement. The Police Cadet program also helps to provide quality candidates for all law enforcement. Cadets increase services the Police Department can provide to our community and can provide support in the following areas:

  • School, park, and bike trail patrols
  • Community events and festivals
  • Safety presentations
  • Traffic control and scene management during emergencies
  • Senior wellness checks
  • Vacation checks
  • Clerical/Office support

The program is administered by Cadet Program Director Officer Alan Pinette and Coordinator CSO Gail Jimenez.
