Catterick police cadets.

North Yorkshire Police is recruiting for its Catterick police cadets unit.

The cadet scheme is open to all young people aged between 14 and 16 who live in Catterick Garrison and the surrounding areas.

During your weekly cadet meetings cadets learn about policing duties and skills, and basic law.

The cadet nights will also include physical activities, drills, visits from various officers and staff members from NYP and first aid skills.

Being a cadet will give the young people a great insight into policing and they will have the opportunity to visit departments within the police service such as the dog section, firearms unit, roads policing and crime scene investigation units.

The cadets will represent North Yorkshire Police and in addition to the weekly meetings they will be expected to contribute at least three hours each month to assist thelocal community with events such as fairs, town shows and any other local events.

They will also assist your local Neighbourhood Policing Teams working alongside both PCSOs and Police Officers with crime prevention initiatives, community safety events and street surveys.

After th first 12 weeks’ induction training, the cadets will attend an attestation ceremony where they will take the cadet oath in front of their family and friends.

Cadets will be issued with a uniform but you must provide their own black leather boots/shoes.
