The West Mercia Police Cadets scheme is aimed at young people who are:

  • aged 16
  • and have finished secondary education and are thus eligible to start that September at a sixth form or other further education college; begin an apprenticeship or seek employment.

Young people can remain as cadets for two years.

We are only able to offer places to young people living in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire. Each unit is linked to a local policing area, of which there are five in the force. Young people wishing to join should be resident within that policing area. If you live outside of West Mercia's force area please contact your local police force to see if they run a cadet scheme. You can do this by calling in at your local police station or contacting the force through its website.
