The first police cadets in Peterborough celebrated finishing their training with a passing out ceremony.
The 28 Volunteer Police Cadets took their oath in front of distinguished guests at Thomas Deacon Academy recently.
The newly formed cadets group was the idea of Cambridgeshire police and crime commissioner Sir Graham Bright.
He said: “This first group are the pioneers of the Volunteer Police Cadet programme in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire. I would like to congratulate each of them on their commitment, enthusiasm and determination in successfully completing the training. I would also like to acknowledge the time, effort and dedication shown by all the volunteer leaders to the training programme.”
He said that following the success of the scheme in Peterborough more cadet groups would be launched across the county.
The cadets give at least three hours to volunteer to help in their community.
