Window Opens To Join Herts Police Cadets

Youngsters in Hertfordshire interested in joining the police in later life - can now apply to join the cadets.

The application window's opened for 14 to 18 year-olds to join the Hertsmere Volunteer Police Cadets between now and the end of next month.

The group is now recruiting new members to join the unit which is based in Borehamwood.

Hertfordshire Police Cadets are young members of the community that are involved in a wide range of activities and events. As well as learning about police procedures and the law, cadets also play a vital role in community events, engaging with members of the public and educating them on crime prevention.

The Cadets say:

"The role of a cadet is extremely varied and you will develop a wide range of skills while having fun and helping your local community. Groups also participate in many exciting outdoor activities such as; white-water rafting, weekend holidays and summer camps, court visits and foot patrol at local events.

The group meets every other Tuesday evening and attendance is £2 per session. Members also participate in many fundraising activities throughout the year and the money raised helps to subsidise cost for summer camps and other activities. 

Lead instructor PC Ross Paybody said:

"I am really happy that we are able to open recruitment for the group again. I am incredibly proud of all the achievements our group has made so far and look forward to sharing this with some new recruits."

The group is run by local police officers, Police Community Support Officers and Hertsmere Borough Council's community safety representatives.
 
Spaces are limited and will be on a first come first served basis. To apply, fill out the online form available via the following link http://www.herts.police.uk/hertfordshire_constabulary/cadets/apply.aspx
 
Applications should be received by Thursday, June 30.

Successful applicants will be invited to a recruitment evening on Thursday, July 19."
