Want To Join The Police? Looking For Volunteer Cadet Leaders.

West Midlands Police have written to me with this information.If you are interested please contact the links in the information.

As a force priority we are currently recruiting for volunteer Cadet Leaders and would like to highlight this role working in the local community.

The scheme recruits 13-17 year olds, from a diverse range of backgrounds, and provides them with unique opportunities to gain experience and insights into West Midlands Police. Unlike its predecessor, this scheme is not a recruitment tool, but is about creating active citizens, engaging with our communities, and giving our young people opportunities to help others and learn new skills.
Cadets are provided with a uniform, are organised into cohorts of up to 30 members, and are expected to attend meetings every week during school term time. There is no charge – everything is supplied for free, including the uniform and any trips.

The force is open to applications from people across our communities who are at least 18-years-old and would like to become Volunteer Cadet Leaders. There is no upper age limit, and applications are welcome from All.

Volunteers have access to a variety of professional development opportunities and the chance to have a positive influence in the lives of young people in our communities. It doesn’t matter where you live or work if you want to volunteer. Volunteers will be needed throughout the region to help support the continued growth and management of the scheme.
