To increase the amount of minority and female officers, the Albany Police Department has created the Adult Police Cadet Internship Program
The Adult Police Cadet Program is grant-funded and offers opportunities for Albany residents to work part-time in the Albany Police Department. The program will expose the interns to every aspect of police operations and provide valuable mentoring opportunities.
During this two-year program, they will undergo regular training and familiarization sessions with officers. Additionally, they will have responsibilities that may include, “gathering information, helping with crime reports, tracking cases and warrants, and performing public assistance by helping with the department’s front desk answering service.”
Ultimately, the program helps the interns prepare for the Police Officer Civil Service Test.
The program is funded by a Federal Community Development Block Grant and targets young men and women from disenfranchised areas of the City of Albany.
