Police Rangers is an adventure based, youth development activity offered in partnership with Cadets WA and is open to young people of high school age.  The program is designed to increase youth self-confidence, leadership ability, team building skills and self-esteem.

Being involved with the Police Rangers is a chance to have some serious fun, while learning new skills and gaining valuable experience. Police Rangers learn first aid and other emergency skills and take part in bush craft, survival procedures, abseiling, climbing, exploring, orienteering, drill techniques, archery, bush walking, camping and much more.

The training programs for First Class Ranger and Senior Ranger are currently endorsed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia and enable Rangers who successfully meet the course standards to gain points towards their WACE (WA Certificate of Education).

Police Rangers is open to all youth aged between 12 and 17 years, and not just those who wish to become a WA Police Officer.

Police Ranger Units operate in WA PCYC Centres and secondary schools throughout Western Australia, as part of the Cadets WA program facilitates a commitment by Western Australia Police to interact and form a positive relationship with young people.

Funding is made available through Cadets WA, meaning that this activity is offered free of charge (with the exception of special unit events).
