The Cleveland Police Foundation, in a strategic partnership with the Cleveland Division of Police, developed the Public Safety Career Pipeline Program (the “Program”) to cultivate a pipeline of highly qualified candidates to increase the number of young women and minorities interested in a career in public safety.
By targeting high school students, the Program will generate interest and respond to increased inquiries for careers opportunities in public safety among youth in underserved areas and begin to develop leadership skills and a sense of community in young adults. Additionally, through the Program, we will be able to help close the gap between high school graduation and eligibility age to apply for a career in law enforcement by empowering youth to build their social capital so that they are actively engaged in activities to equip them with the skills and abilities to prepare them for a successful career in public safety.
