The LCSO Cadet Program is designed for youths between the ages of 15 and 20 years old.  This volunteer program gives youth the opportunity to learn from people in law enforcement about the variety of careers in the field, while also encouraging youth to be strong leaders in their community.  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 annually, with selection for the program occurring in September. All cadets are issued a Class A uniform with felt campaign hat, a Class B uniform, and a training polo.
