What do police cadets do?

Police cadets, help and assist in the community by getting involved in stewarding in local events such as fairs, town shows, carnivals and other local events. We also assist in high profile events in your areas.

We also help the local policing teams through leaflet drops, crime prevention initiatives, community safety events and street surveys.

Police cadets are taught basic knowledge in a variety of policing activities. This includes an overview of the law, for example, definitions of robbery, burglary, theft, public order, the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, along with arrest and custody procedures. Cadets also gain an insight into how police officers deal with a road traffic collision, first aid, personal safety, conflict management, the police caution and stop & search powers.

We have a big interest in teamwork within the cadets, which is why we also practice and perfect the discipline of drill. We take pride in our uniform. As cadets we are taught how to be disciplined and independent on how to clean and maintain high standards in uniform. We present ourselves professionally at events and cadet weekly meetings.

As cadets we also have the opportunity to visit different departments in the police service, such as Air Support Unit, Dog Section, Firearms Unit, Roads Policing and Scenes of Crime unit.
