The Winters Police Department Cadet Program is holding a “Sweets for Your Sweetheart” fundraiser. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, those who purchase a sweet treat to share with their sweethearts will help support the cadet program.

Choose from three types of tempting treats — cookies, cupcakes or chocolate truffles —or mix and match for only $10. They can be delivered for $4.

Order forms must be turned in by Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the Winters Police Department front lobby, 702 Main Street. If paying by check, note “Winters PD Cadets” in the memo line.

To download an order form, visit http://www.winterspolice.org/cadet-program/ or pick one up at the Winters Police Department front lobby. All funds raised will go toward supporting the Winters Police Department Cadet Program and will be used to purchase uniforms and equipment.

The cadet program was designed to provide youth an opportunity to serve their community through law enforcement. The program emphasizes the development of leadership skills and positive work ethics necessary for success in future employment.

The goals of the Police Cadet program are to expose men and women to the various aspects of police work, preparing them for a future career in law enforcement. Police Cadets are expected to have high morals, excel academically, use good judgment, and be active in the community.

Cadets assist the Winters Police Department and act as liaisons between police and youth. They have collectively served over 2,000 hours between community events and meetings.

The Winters Police Department Cadet Program is in its second year and several cadets are working toward a future in law enforcement. One of the cadets, Roberto Cuevas, graduated the program as a Cadet Sergeant and has gone on to being employed in Winters as a part time Community Services Officer with plans to attend a police academy.

For more information about the cadet program, call the Winters Police Department, 795-2261.
