Would you like to join the fastest growing uniformed youth group in the UK?

The Warwickshire Police Cadet Scheme is now accepting applications from young people who will be between the ages of 13 and 16 on 1st September 2018. Volunteer Police Cadets are found in a growing number of cities, towns and communities across the UK offering great opportunities to young people. We welcome cadets from any background, social group, gender, ethnicity, ability / disability and whether you have an interest in the police or not.

We are not looking to recruit future police officers, but want to give all young people a chance to be heard, support their community and develop skills to become fantastic citizens in a fun, friendly and exciting way. We also welcome young people who may have previously had contact with the police or may feel some disconnection with their peers and community. 

There is nothing else like the Police Cadet Scheme - it is a unique experience for young people to become part of the policing family for many years.

Benefits of being a police cadet include:

  • Make new friendships

  • Take part in fun and exciting activities

  • Support your own community through volunteering and social action projects

  • Challenge yourself to learn and develop new skills

  • Gain an insight into British policing

Inspector Julia Brealey said "As a cadet, you will undertake a variety of activities, including marching, fitness, team working, role playing and taking part in team building and outdoor events. Cadets will also gain an insight into police life, through talks by guest speakers from different departments and agencies and by taking part in local community policing events.

"Cadets are a family where discipline, friendship and team work are all important. By being a police cadet, you have the satisfaction of knowing that as a young person you are making a difference to your community and developing yourself for any future career."

If you are aged between 13 and 16 on 1st September 2018, live in the Warwickshire area and are interested in becoming a police cadet, please follow this link where you can find out more information.
