North Yorkshire Volunteer police cadet units now recruiting for next year

Following an enforced break due to the coronavirus lockdown the North Yorkshire volunteer police cadet units are up-and-running again.

Friday, 25th September 2020, 7:50 am
The Volunteer Police Cadets are part of a nationally-recognised police uniformed youth organisation.

The units are currently looking to attract new recruits for next year.

North Yorkshire Police’s Citizens in Policing Team have been working hard to re-start the sessions in line with strict Covid-19 guidelines.

This has involved finding new and independent venues with sole use, so that they can keep the cadets and leaders as safe as possible during the pandemic.

The first group to return was the Scarborough Unit which is now running out of Cloughton and Burniston Village Hall at Burniston.

It had its first session on Wednesday, September 23.

A police spokesman said: “The volunteer police cadets are part of a nationally-recognised police uniformed youth organisation which operates in most parts of the United Kingdom.

“The sessions promote a practical understanding of policing among all young people, as well as to encourage the spirit of adventure and good citizenship.
