Police Cadets

cadets003The Port Huron Police Department Cadet Program has been in existence since the 1970’s. Since that time, numerous Cadets have been hired as Police Officers with PHPD, or other police departments. Several past Cadets have worked their way into a Command position with the Port Huron Police Department. Once hired as a Cadet, with a good performance, Cadets can be sponsored through the Police Academy and then hired as a Police Officer with PHPD when grant opportunities exist.

Cadets learn law enforcement functions through a hands on job experience. Cadets perform several duties including but not limited to, completing walk-in minor criminal police reports, minor accidents, serving subpoenas, conducting parking enforcement, patrolling the city parks and recreation areas, assisting supervisors with other administrative duties, and completing ride-a-longs with patrol officers.

The experience obtained as a Cadet is exceptional when applying for the Police Academy, and then as a Police Officer, and furthering one's Law Enforcement career.

All applicants must possess the following:

  • Must be a college student with good standing, and maintaining a "C" or better grade point average.
  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Must be of good moral character with little or no formal contact with the criminal justice system.
  • Must have a valid Michigan driver’s license.
  • Applicants must be able to pass an oral interview and background screening process
