What do Police Cadets do?

Cadets volunteer at community events and initiatives alongside our officers and members of the Special Constabulary. Cadets have supported a number of high-profile events this year including Solstice, WOMAD, Swindon Pride and the Emergency Services Show.

Cadets also helping our Community Policing Teams by dropping leaflets, attending community safety events and carrying out street surveys.

You will be trained in a variety of skills before becoming involved in community work, including learning including how to use radios, first aid, using personal protective equipment, health and safety and the foundations of law.

We also give our cadets an insight into other operational areas of policing such as the Dog Section, Armed Response Group and Air Support Unit.
