Volunteer Police Cadets - can you help?

The scheme provides a safe environment where young people can learn as individuals, develop positive relationships with the police and actively support the community. The Petersfield Unit is made up of a fantastic group of local young people who are committed to helping making the local community a safer place.

Cadets are issued with a uniform and attend one weekly evening session lasting two hours. Cadets learn about a wide range of policing and community-related topics and get the opportunity to work alongside police officers and staff at a variety of events and policing operations, leading them to achieve our Police Cadet Volunteering Awards.  Our cadets are often involved in crime prevention initiatives, large events such as Moonwalk, New Forest Show, Victorious Festival, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and helping the police understand issues from a young person’s perspective.

How can I help?

The scheme is run by teams of fantastic volunteers from the force and the local community. The Petersfield team need new volunteers to get involved and help.

You do not have to have previous experience, only an interest in helping young people achieve their best and reach their full potential.

Leaders volunteer around 2 hours per week in term times to assist in the running of sessions and supervision of cadets at policing events. If you are not confident with actively helping during sessions we are flexible and any help you can offer would be much appreciated whether this be admin support, driving, fundraising. Whatever time you can spare will be valuable to us. If you can’t commit to every week but still want to get involved, your help will always be appreciated.

So, if you’re looking for something fun to do that is full of opportunities and is extremely rewarding, you can get involved now as a Volunteer Adult Leader.
