The Volunteer Police Cadets started in February 2014. Following the national framework we run 6 units of 15 Cadets covering ages from 11-18years. Each unit is coordinated by an apprentice Youth Worker who was formerly a Cadet.
DAAC’s 3 Step Approach is built into the Cadet programme.
The aims of our Cadet programme are to:
We want to Educate and inform our Cadets. They learn about the role of the police in the community and are introduced to Problem Orientated Policing (POP) Plans. The need for self discipline is introduced with uniform, parade and pass-out training. Personal development is also supported with CV building, peer mentoring and leadership training.
Gaining an understanding of the local Community and how they can become active citizens is a key objective for our Cadets. They are introduced to multi agency working, voluntary organisations and environmental initiatives. This may include supporting public events, junior neighbourhood watch, blogging/social networking and fundraising for example.
Our Cadets participate in a wide range of activities that are designed to be fun while facilitating personal development. This could include trying a new sport such as rock climbing or martial arts, improving health and fitness through healthy eating or getting involved in the community thorough volunteering or peer mentoring.
