We would like to thank Colton Anderson for his years of service to the Milwaukie Police Cadet program. Colton has been a cadet with our department since November 2013. Colton has spent countless hours training, doing ride alongs, volunteering at community events and competing in the Cadets annual Law Enforcement Challenge (LEC) where he earned many awards. Colton was promoted to the rank of Cadet Sergeant in 2015 and his leadership efforts have been a valuable asset to his peers and department. Colton is leaving the Milwaukie Police Cadet Program to become a volunteer Reserve Police Officer with the Gladstone Police Department. Colton will also continue to be a full time college student at PSU, where he is majoring in sociology. While we will surely miss his good attitude and strong work ethic, we wish him all the best in his continued service to the community. Thanks Colton! #Cadetsergeantcolton
