  • NYPD Cadet Program

    Hello everyone. I want to join the nypd cadets before becoming an officer. Unfortunely i have to go through a 2 year community community college before i am accepted at a regular 4 year college. Can i be accepted to the cadets with 60 credit associate degree? It's gonna take forever if i have to wait till i get to the 4yr college. It's a stupid rule if i can't. I will have the necessary 2 yr degree shouldnt that be enough?

    This is one of the most wierdest questions I came across here yet.

    Why would you be so eager to be a police cadet with 60 credits, instead of taking a PO exam and getting hired right off the bat as a PO.

    You dont do much as a cadet other than pick up the occasional phone, make some photo copies here and there and wear a baby blue shirt all day. Lets not forget the pay of about $12/hr.

      The promotional exam is nice too... A guy I know who was a Cadet is in the Academy now, graduated from St. John's... he was in the 1st Dep's office, made some nice connections...

          Jet,

          What you are saying is.. its ok to kill your time making peanuts and make "connections" than getting on the job making some decent money and making your own connections?.

          If you think every precinct in the city gives a darn if you were a cadet, your totally wrong. Even more so if you plan on being sergeant.

            I am taking the police exam 8132 in october. Since there is a pretty much 4 yr waiting list i thought the cadets would be something good to get into while i wait. Thats all. Some people are so sensitive. sheesh!

              it gives you an auto spot in the academy right now which is awesome. you need to have at least 45 college credits but less then 90. you need to be inrolled in a 4 year college tho or have a letter saying you will be attending one next semester. the point of the program tho is to get more cops with a college degree so to gain any of the benifits you would need to obtain a degree. and nyctnt is wrong depending on where you work and the police officers and bosses that you work with you can do much more then answering a phone.

                I never said that precincts will give a damn who was a Cadet or not, I'm talking about the fact that he worked for (and worked hard for) the 1st Deputy Commissioner and in my opinion, that can be a strong acquaintance, you know?

                Plus, it's not a waste of time making peanuts, It's a job offered to college students where they make their own ours, make good money for a college kid (it's like $14 an hour), and also get up to $60,000 (correct me if wrong) towards their college bills. For a 2 year commitment to the NYPD upon graduation of a 4-year institution.

                Not half bad, definitely not a waste of time to get your degree, I wish I had the perseverance. I just don't bode well with the conveluted politically motivated classes the City University of New York offers me every semester for my $1,500!!

                    Mostly morons if you think a cadet doesnt have a leg up. The connections you make as a cadet transfer over, it could mean the difference between a sweet impact zone and a pure ****hole. Then following impact it could mean the difference between a sweet precinct and a ****hole. Sorry, if you think the cadets didnt gain anything, you are severely mistaken, Ill say, my crane is directly related to where I worked as a cadet, and it has come through numerous times already.

                        When you get 15 credits, Apply for Cadets.
                        by the time your list number is called you will have 45 credits. Plus you will have taken all exams. And if you get lucky you will be placed in housing unit (even if you have less than 45 credits.)

                        and yes you can be accepted with 60 credits but you must take 12 credits next semester. (so they know, your going in 4 a year college)

                        Apply before 95 credits.

                        Cadet payment is 13.09 per hour.
                        The good thing is, in a way, when you graduate from college "they will have a seat for you in the academy"

                        2 years in community college and 2 years in a "4 year college"
                        you will have AS and BA. Good luck

                          Err, to get a college degree...60 college credits guarentees you entrance only, you need 64 for Sgt. 96 for Lt., BA for Capt. If your in no rush get your degree!

                            Sir,
                            normally I'd bow to the plethora of experience you have obviously amassed while working for the NYPD (I'm assuming you're a cop?). But facts don't lie, and there are numerous statistics out there that prove that one can reap real benefits from being in the cadet corps for a few years. The promotion rates for former cadets are FAR higher than they are for those who elected not to become cadets. Promotion speed to sergeant is something like 55% quicker for former cadets, and promotion rate to captain is something like 85% faster for formers, as well.

                            Sharp cadets who bridge connections with the bosses before getting hired are often given preference when it comes to assignment and vacation. Apparently, somebody does give a darn.

                              The system is designed for veterans to have a leg up. However, that advantage is gone with all these tests. They weren't getting enough recruits or even people taking the tests for that matter so they started giving out more tests and eventually walk in tests. Since oldest exams go first it makes no sense to use veterans preference. It is a much better idea to hold onto it and save it for sgt.

                              In FDNY and DSNY, where they have a test every 4 years and exhaust a test b4 having a new one, veterans preference is HUGE. It means the difference between getting the job and not for a lot of people. My friend just graduated from FDNY Probby School, which was the first class off of the new test. He said the class is all EMT's (which are like cadets in that they are promoted), veterans, and legacies.

                              It kind of stinks that my service doesn't help me but what can u do? Especially when its the damn military's fault that I didn't make the July 2008 class. At least I still have the points once I do get one the job.
