Coronavirus (Covid-19): what we need you to do. We're asking you please to only call 999 if it is an emergency and, if you can, use our online services or live chat. If you’re looking for information about the government instruction to stay at home and how that may affect you, you'll find guidance on Gov.uk. We’ll be updating information on our services over the coming days, please check online for those updates.
Groups will meet on a weekly basis and are run from non-police venues, such as schools.
You’ll wear a Cadet uniform and will be asked to pay a small ‘sub’ of around £10 a month. This will only be used for equipment or events that directly benefit Cadets. However, personal financial circumstances will be considered.
Some of the activities you may take part in include:
• Stewarding local events • Crime prevention stands at community events • Community Speedwatch • Advising the police on youth issues and concerns
irrespective of background or financial circumstances;
including those vulnerable to crime or social exclusion
Once you’re 18 you can volunteer as a Cadet Leader or apply for other roles, like Special Constable, PCSO or Police Officer. While the Cadet scheme is not a direct entrance into the police, it will give you an insight into policing, build your employability skills and help you make informed career choices.
Registration currently closed
Currently, all of our waiting lists have been closed due to the number of cadets already waiting.
