The Clark County Sheriff's Cadet Program provides people who are interested in a career in the field of law enforcement with the opportunity to receive on-the-job training in areas of non-enforcement activity. The Sheriff's Office has the opportunity to observe and evaluate the cadets over an extended period of time to determine whether the cadet would be qualified for law enforcement work with the Clark County Sheriff's Office. The cadet will be able to determine if he/she wishes to pursue a career in law enforcement prior to the Sheriff's Office formally training a new deputy. All too often, a deputy will realize that a career in law enforcement is not desired and will terminate after the Sheriff's Office has invested money and months of training.
