Volunteer Police Cadets are found in a growing number of cities, towns and communities across the UK offering great opportunities to young people aged 13 - 18 years.
We welcome cadets from any background, social group, gender, ethnicity, ability / disability and whether you have an interest in the police or not.
We welcome young people who may have previously been in trouble with the police or may feel some disconnection with their peers and community.
We are not looking to recruit future police officers, but want to give all young people a chance to be heard, support their community and develop skills to become fantastic citizens in a fun, friendly and exciting way.
There is nothing else like the VPC - it is a unique experience for young people to become part of the policing family for many years.
