Cadet Law Academy

Now Open to Seniors

Application Deadline March 31, 2018

On June 10, up to 50 young Kansans will gather for the 48th annual Cadet Law Enforcement Academy session at the Highway Patrol Training Center in Salina. Sponsored by The American Legion, Legion Auxiliary and KS Highway Patrol, the Academy provides high school students an opportunity to learn methods employed to enforce city, county, state, and federal statues with the goal of instilling a better appreciation for those who enforce those laws.  The Academy is not a recruitment program for law enforcement.  Students attending past sessions have had a wide variety of backgrounds, interests, and career plans.  However many students considering careers in law enforcement, as attorneys, and government service have attended as a means to solidify their plans to pursue such careers. 
Open to both male and females, all applicants must be high school juniors or seniors with at least a C+ average scholastically and be physically capable of fully participating in all activities during the week long program. Instruction includes firearms and firing range safety, personal defense, law enforcement history and techniques, pursuit driving on a skid-pan under controlled conditions, practical emergency medical procedures, aircraft use in law enforcement (weather permitting), and the responsibilities of citizens regardless of age.
