Could you help young men and women to fulfill their potential? Inspiring and guiding police cadets towards a successful future – potentially as Specials, PCs, PCSOs and Police Support Volunteers – is a hugely rewarding activity.Whether you are retired or in full or part-time work and you have spare time to volunteer, you’ll have valuable skills and experience that will help cadets prepare for their future careers.
As a cadet leader, you are volunteering your own time to be part of a team that works with our Volunteer Police Cadets based throughout Nottinghamshire.Cadets meet one evening a week to gain insight into the various departments within the force, learn a range of skills and take part in community and sports activities.They also volunteer for four hours a month to assist the police in attending public events, delivering crime prevention advice and general public engagement initiatives.
