Police cadets on recruitment drive in Windsor and Maidenhead

Two recruitment events are taking place to encourage young people from the Royal Borough to join the Windsor and Maidenhead Volunteer Police Cadets (VPC) scheme.

The events are taking place on Saturday, August 16, at Windsor police station in Alma Road between 10am and 12pm, and at Maidenhead police station in Bridge Road between 2pm and 4pm.

The scheme is run for young people between the ages of 14 and 18 and is managed by Sgt Rob Dalton and Police Community Support Officer Oli Woodland.

The cadets say being a member of the VPC offers young people the opportunity to develop more links between the police and public and expand on their own qualities and skills.

Sgt Rob Dalton, from Windsor police station, said: “Recently the Cadets were at the Maidenhead Carnival, Old Windsor Carnival and Thames Valley Police open day. They have also carried out over 50 crime prevention road shows, and we will be attending many more events throughout the year.”

Although they have no legal powers, joining the current group of 25 Police Cadets helps to build confidence and self esteem. They learn about the law, police drill and discipline, first aid, and sports and fitness.
