Warwickshire Police Cadets is a volunteer scheme for young people who wish to be part of a year programme that offers an opportunity to gain a practical understanding of policing and develop their spirit of adventure and good citizenship.

The aim of the scheme is to support Warwickshire Police’s strategy of engagement with young people throughout the force area.
Cadets support local policing priorities through volunteering, working with partner agencies and positive participation in their communities.
They take part in a variety of activities including self-defence training, marching, fitness, team building, role playing and Outdoor events.
Cadets can gain an insight into police life through talks by guest speakers from different departments and agencies and by taking part in local community policing events.
Police cadets are a family where discipline, friendship and team work are all important.
If you become a police cadet, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that as a young person you are making a difference to your community and developing yourself for any future career.
