Cadets in Peterborough are helping to shape the future of Central park.

Police cadets, based at the Thomas Deacon Academy in Queen’s Gardens, carried out an anti-social behaviour survey at Central Park on Saturday.

Organised in conjunction with the Safer Peterborough Partnership’s (SPP) anti-social behaviour team, the survey is part of a wider consultation into the local concerns of residents and how the area could be made safer.

The cadets helped devise the questionnaire before conducting the survey on Saturday (October 24).

PS Tom Rowe from the Safer Peterborough Partnership (SPP) said: “The cadets were incredibly insightful into the impact anti-social behaviour has on the community and how things can be improved. This was a great example of how young people can be part of the solutions to some of the issues in society.”

Cadet Leader DS Heidi McAdam added: “It was great to see the cadets in action engaging with members of the public. It was an ideal opportunity for the cadets to be part of making a difference in their local community.”

The survey will go on to help the SPP make the park safer for local residents in the near future.
