Challenge yourself to learn and develop new skills?
Gain an insight into policing?
Dyfed-Powys Police run a Volunteer Police Cadet programme throughout the force area. The programme is aimed at young people between 13 – 17 years and aims to:
promote a practical understanding of policing.
encourage a spirit of adventure and good citizenship.
provide volunteering opportunities which help and influence the way the police behave, giving you a voice in your community.
encourage young people to play an active part in their community.
As a Volunteer Police Cadet, you will be given a unique insight into how the police service works. You will be provided with a uniform to wear during your volunteering as a Police Cadet and will learn all about police powers and procedures. You also have the opportunity to assist and influence local policing teams on improving the service we provide to our communities.
We meet for two hours a week, and we expect you to attend every week, actively participating in wide range of activities and events.
You will also have opportunities to work with your local community and to improve it through volunteering and we ask our Volunteer Police Cadets for a commitment of at least three hours of volunteering every month.
We currently have Volunteer Police Cadet Units meeting in Newtown, Brecon, Ammanford, Llanelli, Carmarthen, Cardigan and Pembroke.
