Teenagers who want to do something proactive with their spare time are being urged to sign up for the next teenage voluntary police cadets course. The scheme has been running for a number of years and accepts 16 – 19-year-olds who live or attend school in the Carnforth, Garstang, Lancaster or Morecambe areas.
The 38-week course enables teens to experience the full spectrum of policing within Lancashire, while carrying out fundraising challenges to the benefit of local causes. They also undertaken many projects aimed at breaking down barriers between the police, young people and the wider community, while working towards gaining a BTEC qualification.
The next course will start on September 14. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Audrey.email@example.com for an application form, or alternatively call 01524 596967.
Forms must be returned by July 19.
PC Kath Bromilow, course organiser, said: “The course has proven to be a real boost to the CVs of those teens who get involved – they gain an insight into policing and take part in some important community work. Previous cadets have really enjoyed the course and we hope the next set of applicants will benefit in the same way.”
