Leicestershire Police begin fresh recruitment drive for cadets

By Ollie Heppenstall

A new recruitment drive intended to showcase careers in the police has been launched in Leicestershire – with the goal of recruiting a further 150 cadets by September.

The force’s recruitment programme aims to enable cadets aged between 13 and 17 to enhance their lives and gain skills to help their community.

Sergeant Danny Graham, Volunteer Police Cadet lead, said young people were the life blood of the police. 

The VPC programme at Leicestershire Police continues to grow from strength to strength, and I am immensely proud of the force’s committed investment in young people.”

A promotional video included in the campaign, featuring a group of current police cadets, shows opportunities and activities on offer to cadets including a visit to the East Midlands Operational Support Service, a tour of a riot van and a large-scale leaflet drop assisting police with a major investigation.

Cadets get to take part in a wide range of activities, said Sgt Graham.

“Joining the cadets is an excellent opportunity for anyone wanting to try something new, increase their skills and confidence, and meet people from all walks of life,” he said.
