Young Notts Police cadets went door knocking in Worksop on Tuesday night to promote the force’s Leave A Light On campaign.

Residents on Ely Close and Garside Street got a knock their front door from the cadets who were offering home security advice.

The Leave A Light On initiative encourages residents to reduce the risk of burglary in four steps:

• Leave a light on

• Use a timer switch

• Make sure your front door is well lit

• Lock doors and windows at all times

You should also report suspicious activity around homes and gardens to police immediately.

And if you suspect someone of being involved in handling stolen goods call Crimestoppers anonymously.

The Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood Cadets, who are based at the Online Youth and Community Centre in Kilton, were recruited in September.

They are 11 of 76 cadets across the force.

Det Insp Ash Wilson said: “Our Cadets were fantastic on the night and a credit to the force.”

“They engaged well with local residents not just about burglary but also just in terms of introducing themselves.”

“Next stop: streets in Harworth, Retford, Newark and Ollerton.”
