Lapd Cadet Leadership Academy

The Cadet Leadership Academy is an 18 week course teaching life skills at an early age. Recruits are taught on a variety of topics by subject matter experts. These subjects range from ethics and morality to finances and health. By the time they graduate, these recruits have been instilled with a sense of character and  pride that cannot be quantified.

Possibly the greatest gains are the like-minded  friends who are made through shared experience, creating a support group that will continue to pay dividends for the rest of their lives. 


 The current LAPD Cadet Leadership Academy is now in session at our LAPD  Facility:

Ahmanson Recruit Training Center

5651 West Manchester Avenue

Los Angeles, Ca 90045

7.30am – 3.30pm

The next Academy starts August 8th, 2015
