Become a Leader with Essex Volunteer Police Cadets!

Published on: December 15, 2023

We want to offer young people in Essex the opportunity to be a part of our Volunteer Police Cadet programme.

But we need your help.

We’re looking for local people, over the age of 18, to get involved in our Police Cadet programme as a volunteer cadet leader.

Police Cadets isn’t about recruiting police officers of the future. It is about building positive relationships between young people, their communities, and police.

Our volunteer police cadet leaders help to guide and inspire local teens, encouraging them to become good citizens.

Being a cadet leader is hugely rewarding. Not only will you gain skills, experience and qualifications, but your mentorship can support young local people grow into confident, well-rounded members of our community.

You do not need to have a policing background to be a cadet leader. In fact, we encourage those outside the police community to apply.

Interested and want to find out more?
