Volunteer Police CadetsVolunteer Police Cadets are young people, aged 13-17, who learn about policing and crime and take part in various police related activities, such as crime prevention projects. The Cadet Scheme provides a diversionary activity for young people, increases their knowledge of policing, and breaks down any actual or perceived barriers between young people and the police. At least 25% of Cadets are from backgrounds vulnerable to crime and/or social exclusion and is inclusive of those with diverse needs. Each Cadet Scheme (of around 30 young people) is led by a mix of Police Officers/Police Staff, Special Constables and Police Support Volunteers. Cadet Scheme Team Leaders volunteer around 4-hours per week, and are generally a long-term volunteering opportunity. Cadet Scheme Team Leaders are recruited in the following way: The process involves: 1) Application form; 2) Interview; 3) Background and security checks.
