near the end of the academy cadets are given a list of area offices taking new officers out of the academy. Cadets make a list of which offices they would like. Decisions on where each cadet goes are based mostly on needs of the department and the last 4 numbers in your social.
Btw don't count on any offices in the Sacramento area being open, those are very senior offices and they do not take cadets.
