New Police Cadets group to launch at HRC- 28 March If you are:

  • Aged between 14 and 18 years old
  • Have an interest in helping your local community
  • Would like to become part of a diverse team Hertfordshire Cadets could be what you are looking for!

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. Specialist departments such as the tri-force Armed Policing Unit and Dog Unit also give regular talks. 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 music festivals.

Cadet groups are lead solely by Police Officers, PCSOs and volunteers who support young people in their development. Groups are open to all and you do not have to have ambitions to work within the police force.

A recruitment day will take place at the college on Saturday, March 28 for people to find out more about the Cadets scheme by talking to existing members and group leaders. The event runs from 10am until 1pm and is open to anyone aged between 14 and 18, but places are limited. Anyone wishing to attend the recruitment day must register their interest by completing the form online in advance at: http://www.herts.police.uk/hertfordshire_constabulary/cadets/apply.aspx
