Role:

Apply to be a Volunteer Police Cadet with Northumbria Police now!


  


 


Joining the cadets is about way more than aspiring to be a future police officer. Every year we welcome people from any background – whether they have an interest in the police or not.


 


This is a great opportunity to try new experiences, explore new places, meet new people and develop some fantastic skills! Our groups meet once a week during school term time for 3 years and are led by officers, staff, and volunteers across Northumbria Police. Joining the cadets will give you a chance to speak for and support your local community, learn new life skills and, most importantly, have fun!


 


As a police cadet you’ll be part of something completely different. Here are some of the great things you’ll get involved in –


 


·       Visit areas of police work like Forensics, and our Dogs and Horses Section


·       Conducting a night shift patrol


·       Take part in crime prevention initiatives


·       Help police community events (e.g. Sunderland Airshow, Northumberland County Fairs, Newcastle Pride)

·       Work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award.


It’s not all about the police – you’ll get involved in local programmes such as visiting schools and care homes, join in with sports sessions, and even learn first aid. And it’s also a bonus that all of this looks great on your CV!


After completing your induction training, you’ll attend a special Attestation evening where you will take the Cadet Oath in front of your family and friends.


Don’t worry if you’ve never been part of a club or group before or if you’ve previously been in trouble with the police – this is a great opportunity to find out exactly what you are capable of and be part of a great team.


And if you’re not quite sure if it’s for you or have any questions, we’d be happy to chat – just get in touch at Citizensinpolicing@northumbria.police.uk.  


 


You’ll need to have lived in the UK for 3 years as well as currently living in the Northumbria Police Area (you can find out more on this link Home | Police.uk (www.police.uk)


 


You must also either be 13 or 14 on or before the 31st August 2022, turning 14 or 15 in the academic year that falls between 1st September 2022 – 31st August 2023 (going into Year 9 or 10).
