Have your say

NEW volunteer police cadets will pass out at a ceremony in front of more than 300 friends and family next week.

The event will see the 150 cadets welcomed to Hampshire Constabulary and takes place on Wednesday at 6.30pm at Southampton Guildhall.

Force cadet leader PC Steve Swift said: ‘The Hampshire Constabulary Volunteer Police Cadets continue to go from strength to strength.

‘Within eight months they have grown to more than 200 cadets, all committed to helping to make their communities a safer place to live, work and visit.

‘During this time they have given more than 1,800 hours of free time to assist with local policing and community initiatives.’

They will be presented certificates by Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire Nigel Atkinson.

There are Volunteer Police Cadet Units at Bay House School, Gosport and King Richard School, Portsmouth.
