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.

The week-long program is held annually the first full week of June.  This year Cadet Lawman will be held on the campus of Connors State College in Warner, 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.

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, in 1977, to the former Clinton-Sherman Air Force Base in Burns Flat, Oklahoma and resided at this historical base for 41 years, through the 44th academy in 2017.  Western Technology Center in Burns Flat, Burns Flat - Dill City Schools, Elk City Elks Lodge, Quartz Mountain Fun Park, Foss Lake State Park, Burns Flat BFF's, Retired Troopers, and many other people helped year after year.  

In 2018, Cadet Lawman was moved to the Campus of Connors State College in Warner Oklahoma.

Today, Cadet Lawman is sponsored by the Oklahoma State Troopers Association, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the Oklahoma Elks Major Projects, and CUDD Pressure Control along with many other behind the scene helpers
