Tigard Police Cadet Program
Cadets participate in police ride-alongs, routine patrols, crime prevention activity, community outreach
events and on-going monthly training. Cadets get first-hand knowledge regarding how law enforcement serves
its community. It's not all work. Cadets also get the opportunity to participate in the annual Law
Enforcement Challenge, competing in various events with other Cadets and Explorers from around the state.
