Warwickshire Cadets

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 Outdoor 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, at the end of each year South and North Warwickshire hold an award ceremony involving all the Cadets and four awards are given to Cadets based on the following the criteria
  • Volunteer hours completed in the year
  • Community engagement whilst on duty and attendance at events

Quote from PC Lee MARSTON Principle Cadet Leader for North Warwickshire “As their leader its great to see each Cadet go through their 2 year journey, some Cadets start as shy young people and have developed so much and beam with confidence now, becoming positive role models for their peers. I would like to congratulate all of the Cadets on their hard work and wish our Senior Cadets that leave us in September good luck for the future. I would like to thank Warwickshire Police Crime Commissioner (Philip Seccombe) for attending our award ceremony”.  If your interested in becoming a Police Cadet, visit Warwickshire Police Webpage and click on the Cadet tab or follow the Warwickshire Police Cadets on Twitter @WarksCadets or Face book at Warwickshire Police
