Almost 100 young people are set to be recruited by Notts Police to serve as police cadets, with the aim of increase engagement between the force and young people, especially those from minority, under-represented and deprived sections of the community.
The cadets will meet once a week on a week day evening, where they will learn about a range of topics including police history, first aid, conflict management skills and campaigns -like those to reduce road traffic accidents, anti-social behaviour, and alcohol related crime.
Cadets will also take part in team building exercises, sports activities, and have the chance to learn about specialist police units, like the dog section and the underwater search unit.
Four hours a month will be spent volunteering to help the police at public events, deliver crime prevention initiatives, conduct crime surveys and general public engagement activities.
More information on how to get involved will be available at www.nottinghamshire.police.uk soon.
