The cadets, who are all aged 16 on joining, take part in a two-year training and development programme, delivered from bases within communities. To be a cadet costs and the training and development programme provides youngsters with the opportunity to learn new skills, take part in exciting activities, and create lifelong relationships.

Cadets take part in team building exercises, sports activities, and will have the opportunity to learn about specialist police units, like the dog section and the under water search unit. As part of the programme, cadets will volunteer four hours a month to assist the police in attending community events and general public engagement activities.
