The LCSO Cadet Program is designed for youths between the ages of 15 1/2  and 20 years old.  The program gives youth the opportunity to learn more about careers in law enforcement.  The program has been in existence approximately 20 years, and they are active with LEEPAAC (Law Enforcement Explorer Post Advisors Association of Colorado). Cadets volunteer approximately 4,000 hours per year at various events.

Besides learning about law enforcement, the cadet program also has an emphasis on the following skills: leadership, networking, communication, and team building.  Currently the LCSO Cadet Program is limited to 20 members, and they recruit and train new cadets in the fall.  All cadets are issued a Class A uniform with felt campaign hat, a Class B uniform, and a training polo.
