The Toledo Police Public Safety Cadets is a program for young adults who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement. The program gives young adults a hands-on experience into law enforcement through specialized training, practical experiences, and community events. Public Safety Cadets learn about several aspects of law enforcement, including patrol operations and crime scene investigation.

Cadets compete in police related scenarios at a state and national level. Cadets also participate at community service events and assist with various duties including traffic control, parking, and grounds security.

To be eligible for the program, cadets must be 14-21 years old and maintain a 2.0 GPA in school. Cadets shall not have any arrests or convictions involving felonies, crimes of violence, drug offenses, or associations with any gang or criminal group.
