Last Summer Storybook

What is Cadet Lawman

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.

How To Attend

Contact a Trooper or an Elk Member in your area and ask for an application or download one online, below.

Available to Oklahoma high school students only, during the summer between their Junior and Senior year.

43rd Annual Cadet Lawman Academy is scheduled to be held June 5th - 11th, 2016.

Application deadline was April 1st, 2016.


In 1973, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. Bill Price and Lt. Bill Hollars went to Kansas to observe a similar program.

It involved mostly classroom work with limited hands-on activities.

Cadet Lawman was started in Oklahoma in 1974 and co-sponsored by the Jaycees and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol - Safety Education Division.  The first year 39 young men attended Cadet Lawman at the Robert R. Lester Training Center in Oklahoma City.

In 1976 the Jaycees and the Oklahoma Elks Major Projects sponsored Cadet Lawman with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol - Safety Education Division.  Also in 1976, 3 girls attended the academy along with 44 boys.

The program moved to Burns Flat in 1977 and was sponsored by the Oklahoma State Troopers Association, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and the Oklahoma Elks Major Projects who still sponsor the program. 

Other vital sponsors include Western Technology Center in Burns Flat, Burns Flat - Dill City Schools, CUDD Pressure Control,
COHPS - Concerned Oklahomans for the Highway Patrol Society, and many other people who help out year after year.
