Anne Arundel County's councilmen are unanimous in their support for reviving the county's police cadet program. They voted 7-0 on Monday to support a resolution urging the police to reinstate the program, which was discontinued about a decade ago during budget cuts. The cadet program would hire young people as part-time employees to assist with some police duties while learning about law enforcement. They would not have the power to make arrests or issue tickets, but they could help at public events and staffing police stations.
