What is the Volunteer Police Cadet Programme?
The Volunteer Police Cadet Programme provides an opportunity for young people aged between 15 and 17 years to join the policing family and gain an insight into community policing.
The programme was designed to develop key life skills, enhance your CV and help to prepare you for your future career, whether this is with the police service or in another profession.
The programme runs for a year and training sessions take place every fortnight during the week. We currently run programmes throughout Cheshire with new groups starting every March.
In addition to the training sessions, you will also complete 40 hours of voluntary work in your community that you will complete over the year, to fit alongside your education and any extra-curricular activities.
You will be expected to wear a police cadet uniform throughout the programme.
