Cadets on Parade.
Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police Cadets is a volunteer scheme for young people. For Warwickshire the scheme began in September 2014 in Leamington and Nuneaton.
The aim of the scheme is to support Warwickshire Police's strategy of engagement with young people throughout the force area.
It is aimed at young people who wish to be part of a two year programme that offers an opportunity to gain a practical understanding of policing and develop their spirit of adventure and good citizenship.
Cadets support local policing priorities through volunteering, working with partner agencies and positive participation in their communities.
They take part in a variety of activities including self-defence training, marching, fitness, team building, role playing and Outward Bound events.
Cadets can 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.
Police cadets are a family where discipline, friendship and team work are all important.
If you become a police cadet, you will 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.
In return we ask you to commit to attend the weekly meetings and to give 15 hours of voluntary work per quarter.
Meetings will take place every Thursday between 6pm and 9pm at the following locations:
- Leamington - Warwickshire College
- Nuneaton - North Warwickshire and Hinckley College
To apply to be a Warwickshire Police Cadet you must:
- live in Warwickshire
- be in year 11 at school, and
- be eligible to start at a sixth form or other further education college, begin an apprenticeship or seek employment in September.
