DEPUTY CADET PROGRAM
The Deputy Cadet academy is a multi-week, age specific academy that will help each deputy cadet receive valuable training. Employees of the Sheriff’s Office provide all instruction for the academy, which introduces students to law enforcement by giving them a first hand look at the various career opportunities that are available. The academy starts with the Code of Ethics and provides an overview of each bureau within the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. The deputy cadets will also participate in physical training during the academy.

The Deputy Cadets receive some similar training opportunities that are given to the Deputy Recruits that are hired by the agency.
The mission of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Cadet program is to assist students in character development while teaching leadership skills. This program provides the deputy cadets with an introduction to an exciting and rewarding career in law enforcement.
