The Volunteer Police Cadets programme provides an opportunity for young people aged 13-17 to get involved in activities which support community policing and learn about responsible citizenship. 

As a Cadet, you'll undergo training and take part in voluntary work with the police in your local community. You'll develop key life skills and enhance your opportunities for further education, training and employment – whether this is within the police service or another profession.
