My name's Charlotte and I am a former Volunteer Police Cadet with Lincolnshire Police (Nov 2002 - Jan 2005)

I do not think that Humberside Police currently operate a Volunteer Police Cadet scheme. I think the closest one would be it's neighbouring force, Lincolnshire Police, which operates Cadet schemes in Lincoln, Boston, Bourne, Grantham, Louth (and possibly Skegness).

If you apply to become a Volunteer Police Cadet, you do not spend 3 weeks at a training centre as it is not like joining the regular Police Service as Police Constable. There are specified Cadet Liaison Officers (normally serving Police Officers, or ex-cadets themselves) who will train you in various things such as police procedure, scenarios, fitness, drill and inspection, orienteering, team building activities, the various police departments, the law etc (there is a massive list of activites which varies dependant upon funds, and which force operates the scheme, because there is no set way of running a cadet corp - each one operates differently).

Uniforms also vary dependant upon force, but it is usually similar to that of the force you are joining, however it is designed specifically to make sure you can be identified as a Volunteer Cadet rather than a Police Officer. (See picture of myself in my uniform below).

Normally, once you become a Police Cadet, you would usually meet at a designated station once a week for a couple hours and help out at events and within the community (such as markets and shows etc), do leaflet drops which is part of crime prevention, property marking, fundraising, talks in local schools and the training as stated above - but like I said, it varies massively dependant upon which force, and even which division you join within that force!

If you have any more questions feel free to post here, or PM me and I will be more than happy to help. In the meantime, you may want to browse the other threads in this section of the forum to get an idea of some of the things myself and other cadets have posted about the cadets - I think you will find it to be very interesting and informative! (Particularly look at the 'guide to the police cadets', kindly put together by Lord Vader, which you will find pinned to the top of this sub-forum!) :whistle:

Lotte you cut the picture short, u didnt show the shoes, lol, everyone knows the shoes lol.

DO NOT take the mickey of my drill shoes... :lol: they were actually complimented by a RSM (Regimental Sergeant Major) at Hendon for the first competition I went to, during the inspection before the drill contest! :whistle: They're lovely and shiney; I'm very good at bulling shoes (so good that other cadets were asking me to help them with theirs, and I would take their shoes home to bull)! They also have lovely metal segs in the bottom which make the most wonderful sound while marching along...ahh how I miss drill..

Humberside Police DO have police cadets (I live in the Humberside Police area) , however they are full-time and not volunteers.

I think that they take cadets on at 16, once they have finished school.

They participate in duties at the police station and going out with police officers, and they also spend a couple of days a week at a Hull college studying for a Diploma in Public Services. Once they reach 18, i believe that they are then fast-tracked into becoming police officers.

If you need any more info, PM me and i'll try to help you!

I'm 17 and an Accredited Police Volunteer with Humberside. I looked into joining the police cadets when I was 16 but because it is full time it clashed with my studies as I've stayed in the 6th form. I believe VPC 120 is right, the scheme is run similar to a modern apprenticeship I think. But I must admit I have never seen or really heard of the police cadets in Humberside. I'll see what I can find out. :whistle:

I am a police cadet with humberside police. We are employed by the police fiorce and do 2 8 hour shifts a week. this is normally a monday and tuesday. The rest of the week we attend college and do a college course - Public Services. when we are on a break from college - easter hols etc we work at the police station full time.

we have all been allocated to a police station where we all have different lines of work to do. this can range from working in a particular department to working on a shift with the response teams.

We get paid every 4 weeks just like the police officers however we dont get nearly as much as they do - obviously!! :whistle:

they are not running the cadet scheme any more and we are the last intake.

If you read the quote above it says that Humberside Police aint running the cadet scheme anymore.

You could always try and become a APV. (if they are still running that?? last i heard they might not be.)

Uniforms often tend to look similar to the forces, but say cadet, not police and clearly identify you as a cadet and not a police officer.

We dont have a uniform like the second picture either, apparently they used to, because of the similarity with actual full time police uniforms so they change ours to a uniform that looks and is the same colour like a armed team or dog team

Hi Thackz,

It appears Humberside used to have a volunteer cadet service but no longer do.

I've had a quick search on their website but to no avail.

You could of course ring them or drop them a line at recruitment@humberside.pnn.police.uk to ask whether they have any schemes going throughout Humberside.

Alternatively, just across the Humber would be your best bet with Lincolnshire. They have a cadet scheme in place.

However, after looking at their website here, the majority of their cadet corps are located in the south of Lincolnshire, with Louth being their furthest North. It appears this is a 45+ mile journey from Hull, though. South Yorkshire Police also have a scheme but the nearest one to Hull is in Doncaster, and that's a 50 mile journey :D

Best bet mate is just to drop them a line to make sure they don't have a scheme. I cannot find one on Humberside's police website but it may be that the Cadet Corps aren't run centrally and have their own website (as is the case for Hertfordshire, I believe). If they tell you they haven't got any schemes, then you could always voice your opinion and interest - others may have already done so.

Best of luck :aok:
