Do you live in the Humberside force area and are 15-18?

Do you have enthusiasm and commitment and can dedicate two hours, one evening a week?

If you do then we want you to become one of our cadets….

Cadets are ambassadors for Humberside Police. They act as mentors and role models within their communities.

Cadets have a variety of different duties. They will be required to attend a two-hour lesson each week, as well as volunteering for at least three hours per month with the community teams.

This volunteering covers a wide range of different exciting opportunities, including: student officer training events, mosque visits, Night Challenge, community early intervention events and the High Sheriff’s legal services lunch.

The overarching aim of the cadet scheme is to:

• Give responsible, civic minded young people a positive experience with Humberside Police
• Develop positive relationships with the next generation
• Provide young people with an opportunity to develop themselves within an established framework based around law and the police
• Encourage young people to act as peer role models as they represent Humberside Police

The entry requirements for becoming a cadet are as follows:

• You must live in the Humberside Police area
• You must be aged between 15 – 18 years as of 1 September 2017
• Enthusiasm and commitment are essential
• No formal academic qualifications are needed
• Dedication to attend one evening per week for two hours is required

To qualify you will need to successfully pass Force vetting procedure and a probationary period.
