We will be having our first cadet meeting on Monday, September 29th at 6:30pm at the EMS Center (same place we had our training last year). At this meeting we will be going over the plans for this upcoming cadet year. We will also be having promotion exams. These exams are optional to take, however it is highly encouraged that you at least try them. The first part will consist of a uniform inspection and written test (similar to the format of the cadet final). The second part will be a pt test consisting of push ups, sit ups, and 1 1/2 mile run.
We ask that every cadet bring a check for $26.00 made out to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Cadets. This is mandatory if you want to stay in the program. This is to pay for the insurance provided to each cadet by the Boy Scouts of America. We would like to have everyone’s check in on the 29th. If there are financial difficulties and you cannot pay the $26.00, let Deputy Hill, Deputy Pizzuto, or myself know and we will work something out. If you are in college and would like to still participate in cadets but cannot attend the meeting, please contact me so we can work something out.

Camp graduation will be on 08/02/14 at 1100hrs. I would suggest getting to the campus at 0900hrs to pick up your children’s luggage and get in line for graduation as the theater fills up quickly. As of now there are still only 2 tickets per child, should any extra tickets become available I will attempt to secure them but I cannot make any guarantees.
Camp is tomorrow and I hope you’re all ready for it. One last quick reminder, bring your uniforms for graduation. You can bring snacks and drinks for your rooms but don’t go overboard. If you are in Mock Pd, we should have enough holsters and red guns for all of you just make sure you have a sturdy belt for the holster. Basic program, come in shorts and a t-shirt , don’t make yourself stand out. Get some good sleep tonight and I will see you all tomorrow at 1100hrs at the Sheriff’s office.
WE WILL BE LEAVING FOR CAMP ON JULY 27TH AT 1100HRS. THE DROP OFF LOCATION WILL BE THE UPPER LOT OF THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE. REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE BRINGING ANY MEDICATION IT MUST BE ON THE MEDICAL FORMS AND IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINER OR PACKAGING. IF YOU ARE IN THE BASIC PROGRAM TRY TO BRING BASIC BLUE/BLACK/GRAY SHIRTS AND SHORTS YOU DO NOT WANT TO MAKE YOURSELF STICK OUT.
