We have a vibrant, enthusiastic group of young people aged 13 -18 years who represent the force as Volunteer Police Cadets.

We deliver a varied cadet programme in which you will learn about different aspects of policing, including an introduction to the law and how laws are applied, powers of arrest, the police caution, the criminal justice system and a whole range of police procedures.

In addition we encourage and support you to get involved with community based social action projects. 

We also introduce the you to the values and principles that underpin policing and we help and encourage you to develop and enhance key personal skills that will benefit them in the future.

We are not currently recruiting cadets

If you have recently applied...

If you have recently applied to be a cadet, the advertised selection boards will not now take place in light of current Government advice on social distancing, but we will hold successful applications on file until further notice, so as not to disadvantage those who have applied during this recruitment period. We will be in touch when the situation becomes clearer. If you have been unsuccessful at the application stage you will be advised.
