OKLAHOMA CADET LAWMAN ACADEMY
Cadet Lawman Academy gives selected high school seniors-to-be a first hand taste of what it takes to be a Trooper with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol . The young men and women experience training in precision driving, traffic and boating law enforcement, firearm instruction, self-defense, and law enforcement history. Activities include a tour of Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite, OK. This is a state prison that opened in 1910 which holds medium level security prisoners. The Cadets also participate in many other tour and practical exercises. The week-long program is held annually the first full week of June in Burns Flat, Oklahoma. The week is spent with Troopers, Police Officers, Dispatchers, and other law enforcement and medical personnel. Many who attended the Cadet Lawman Academy in their teens are found in today's ranks of troopers.
Deadline: Usually April 1. Check web site after January 1.
