Cadet Leader

Share by emailShare by email

Could you support our Cadets to fulfil their potential?

Inspiring and guiding police cadets towards a successful future - potentially as Specials, PCs, PCSOs and Police Support Volunteers - is a hugely rewarding activity.

Whether you are retired, in full- or part-time work and you have spare time to volunteer, you’ll have valuable skills and experience that will help cadets prepare for their future careers.

What's involved?

As a cadet leader, you are volunteering your own time to be part of a team that works with our Volunteer Police Cadets based throughout Nottinghamshire.

Cadets meet one evening a week to gain insight into the various departments within the force, learn a range of skills and take part in community and sports activities.

They also volunteer for four hours a month to assist the police in attending public events, delivering crime prevention advice and general public engagement initiatives.

What does a cadet leader do?

  • Engaging and motivating the Cadets
  • Maintaining order and discipline on your base
  • Upholding health and safety regulations
  • Keeping all base records correctly, which includes keeping track of correspondence, files, and updating records
  • Arranging the provision of transport for all base activities and ensuring the base complies with all Health and Safety regulations; and
  • Ensuring that Risk Assessments are in place for all base activities along with other general administration duties
  • Keeping Nottinghamshire Police Safeguarding policies and practices in place
