The “Police Recruit” classification at the Yuba City Police Department provides a unique opportunity for candidates to be sponsored through the law enforcement academy of the department’s choosing.  Upon successfully completing the academy, Police Recruits are re-classified as Police Officers and immediately begin the field training program to prepare them to function as solo officers.  From beginning to end, this process can take approximately one year.
