Jr Police Cadet Program

United States

#1 May 9, 2008
I don't if many of you know but they just started a Jr Cadet Program through the Police Department for 13 yr old to 20 years. And i really think this can help with the teens being occupied this summer and staying out of trouble. They will be helping with the parade and other events and they will be doing different things to make money for this program. Like car washes bake sales and so on and keep in mind this is a non profit organization and all donation are helpful for the kids. This will also help there career later in life.And from what i hear there are 2 girls also on the squad i really think this is great for our cummunity. I as a long time Beach Resident with no children think this is wonderful thing they got started. And i will give a donation and i am sure there is alot of you would like to donate to something like this. Thanks for listening.

Good job CB. This is a great Idea I am really Empressed. And with our Newly elected Tim Trivett likes to help with things like this for the children. If we can get the community to help with programs like this.Like they do bashing people on the forums this program would have plenty of money. GOOD LUCK TO THE JR POLICE CADETS.

Yes (Wonderful Idea) Kenny Blevins Jr is the cordinator of the programs so i would think you take it to the police station and ask him and thanks for your donation and support.

Can the kids write tickets as well? That would be quite interesting as most reckless drivers drive recklessly around them...I think this would be a great opportunity for the kids to have a say in things...under supervision of course.

Years ago there was an Police Explorer troop that many of the young men, and a few young women, were involved in.

I am Det. Kenny Blevisn Jr with the Colonial Beach Police Department.I would like to thank everyone for their comments on the cadet program. The young men and women of the program have worked very hard to get were they are. I started this program to give all teens the opprotunity that I had in Stafford County Sheriff Office, to be able to learn about law enforcement and what we do, grow within them selves, the community and within the department, give the young adults something to strive for and find something that they can beleive in and also people that beleive in them. I had the fortunate ability to start this program in the Colonial Beach Area and I hope with the help of the community we can assist in the development of the youth today. This group of young individuals are the best group of young adults i have had the pleasure of being in contact with. Myself and my advisors of the program thank all of you for the community's support and everything you have said and done for this program. For the ones who wish to make donations you can contact me at the police department and we can discuss how and what you can do. thank you again.

Mr Blevins this is great for you to be able to get this going. And the other officer that are involved it helps the young stay off the street and learn what you all have to do to keep the streets clean. Keep doing what you are doing i think it is wonderful. Thanks

I was a c adet in college and I loved the experience! As a side note, we couldn't write tickets, but we called dispatch when we noticed things that were deserving of a ticket, and they sent an officer. I am greatful that I had that experience, and i hope it is still here for my son when he is old enough!

Are they cadets gonna be doing more in the Summer.It would be nice to see them more working the board walk and other areas and helping out for the trash pickup. That would be a good credit for the cadets to help pick up trash around town.I think this program is great also having the Cadets.
