Soham Volunteer Police Cadets pass out with pride

TEN young Volunteer Police Cadets became the pride of Cambridgeshire during a ceremony to mark the completion of their training at Soham Village College on Monday 11th July.


The young people, all aged between 13 and 18, took their service oath in front of a crowd of distinguished guests including Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite, Assistant Chief Constable, Nav Malik and the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire, Sir David Arculus at the formal passing out ceremony.

Commenting after the ceremony, Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite said:

“I am delighted to welcome our latest Volunteer Police Cadets into the policing family. The Cadet Unit in Soham is going from strength to strength with this second intake of cadets. I would like to offer my warmest thanks for their support and interest in making their communities safer.”

The ceremony followed an intensive 13-week induction programme which has prepared the cadets for community safety work within their local communities. Topics covered during the course included crime prevention, local policing and being a good citizen. The volunteering work can also count towards the Princes Trust/ Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

There are now 5 Volunteer Police Cadet units across Cambridgeshire: in Peterborough, Soham and Wisbech and new units setting up in Cambridge and Cambourne.
