Are You Interested in Becoming a Police Cadet?

If you’re interested in a future with the Police, there’s no better way to develop the skills, knowledge and experience you’ll need than joining Bedfordshire Police Cadets. Groups in Luton and Kempston are now accepting applications, for places starting in September 2013.   Police Cadets are united by a passion for serving the community and supporting the constabulary. As a Cadet, you’ll take part in weekly training sessions, featuring a range of exciting activities. You’ll learn fascinating skills as part of a diverse team of people aged 16-18.

Enjoy the opportunity to support Officers carrying out real policing duties at all kinds of public events in Bedfordshire’s towns and villages - from Luton Carnival and Bedford River Festival, through to Remembrance Parades.

Support given to gain recognised qualifications, to help your CV to stand out from the crowd.

Grow in confidence and gain new abilities. You could have the chance to rise through the Cadet ranks, to roles such as Section Leader or Head Cadet. Make a visible contribution to your community, and develop a wide range of valuable talents.

Many Cadets go on to join the Police full-time, or volunteer to support us as Special Constables.  The experiences you have as a Cadet will help to prepare you for success in any walk of life.

For the September intake – you must be 16 years old by the 1 September 2013.

Free Information Evenings for potential cadets and/or their parents/carers.

These will be held at Barnfield College, Luton, on 5 February 2013, and Police Headquarters, Kempston, on 12 February 2013.

Both events start at 6:30pm and are a great opportunity to learn more about being a Cadet.
