When I used to live on 21st and Lex, I noticed there was a Police Academy nearby. When I saw them on the streets walking home or whatever they never seemed to jaywalk. They always patiently waited the light to turn even when there were no cars coming. Is this because cadets can't break any laws, even silly ones like jaywalking? I thought it was funny.

There's probably somebody watching them at all times.

Boy o boy, those cadets. You should see some of the gung ho cadets, driving in with retired police auction vehicles, flaunting fake lights and parking placards feom somewhere else. And these are the cadet cop buffs.

The persons being trained at the Police Academy (which is now in College Point in Queens) are not "cadets"; they are instead "recruits." The Police Department has "cadets", but it is an entirely different program involving part-time employment for college students, and those "cadets" often do not go on to become police officers after they graduate.


You can read more about the cadet program here:

The cadets are on a probationary period. If caught doing a minor infraction by the higher ups they can lose their job. Why take that chance?
