Litter pick

To celebrate National Volunteers’ Week (1-12 June), Police Cadets across the county have been busy helping to make their communities safer.

And the Wisbech Cadets were out in force to help clean up the community inviting the Police Commissioner along so he could lend a hand.

Volunteer Police Cadet Leader Caroline Scully said:

“I could not be more proud of the Cadets and their commitment to their community. They decided on this idea themselves, organised it during their weekly sessions, invited other local groups to assist and arranged for all the equipment they needed. They extended the session to give maximum benefit to the event and I am so pleased with how much they managed to achieve as a group.”

Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite said:

“I was thrilled to be asked and thoroughly enjoyed rolling my sleeves up. The energy and enthusiasm of the Cadets was very impressive so it was certainly a good work out!”

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, in conjunction with Cambridgeshire Constabulary, offers a variety of ways for volunteers to get involved to help create safer, stronger and more supportive communities.

Volunteer Police Cadets follow an intensive 13-week induction programme which prepares young people, aged between 13 and 18, to support community safety within their local communities. Topics covered include crime prevention, local policing and being a good citizen. The activities can also count towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award Schemes.
