Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II is calling on young Milwaukeeans to strongly consider applying for paid city Fire Cadet and Police Aide positions.

The Fire Cadet (ages 17-19) and Police Aide (ages 17-20) positions allow young people the opportunity to get paid while exploring a rewarding career within the protective services, Alderman Stamper said.

“By getting more young people, especially those of color to consider applying to become an aide or cadet, we as a city are moving forward and changing the narrative on what public safety can look like in Milwaukee,” he said.

Currently a large number of police officers are retiring creating a great opportunity and need for police aides, said Alderman Stamper, chair of the Council’s Community and Economic Development Committee.

“Additionally, as we begin to discuss various elements of the U.S. Department of Justice Collaborative Reform Initiative draft document examining the Police Department, surely part of the conversation will be how the city can better diversify all aspects of our public safety positions,” he said.

“It is incumbent upon all of us to spread the word about these two gateway positions that can lead to life-long public service careers that can manifest themselves as beacons of hope and pride throughout Milwaukee,” the alderman said.

The city is currently recruiting for both Fire Cadet and Police Aide positions. To learn more please see the below:
