Young adults interested in law enforcement can start taking steps toward their career.
The Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) is seeking candidates for its Police Cadet Program.
Eighteen to 20 year olds may apply for the paid position until February 17.
Program participants will receive law enforcement training and experience, according to a release from the PWCPD.
When they become 21, the cadets will be considered for the Police Academy. Academy graduates become police officers.
To be considered for the cadet program, applicants must be U.S. citizens and have a high school diploma or similar degree. They should have a valid driver’s license and be willing to sign a no-tobacco agreement, as well.
Applicants cannot have felony convictions or serious misdemeanors.

The program also offers a flexible schedule for college students.
