Henderson County Sheriff's Office Cadets

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office Cadet program is designed to provide a service for Henderson County, the Sheriff’s Office and the Community that we serve.  A Henderson County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Cadet is considered a future leader in the community.  The goals of the cadet program are to expose young men and women to the various aspects of police work in order to prepare them for a career in law enforcement.  The Cadet program helps to provide quality candidates for future law enforcement related occupations. 

A structured program has been established to promote cadet responsibility.  The cadet expectations are high morals, excelling academically, using good judgment, and being active in the community.  Sheriff Deputy Cadets provide assistance to the HCSO in many different ways and they act as a liaison between law enforcement officers and youth in our community.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office Cadet Program is a worksite based outreach for young men and women who have completed the eighth grade and are 14 years of age, or are 15 years of age but have not yet reached their 22nd birthday.
