Police in Great Yarmouth are offering an exciting opportunity for young people to get involved with their local force.
Great Yarmouth Police Cadets are recruiting new members to come to their weekly sessions, take part in team building activities and join in with local community events.
The recruitment is available for 13-16 year olds who live in the local area, with the weekly sessions taking place on Thursday evenings between 7pm and 9pm at Great Yarmouth Police Station.
The courses will give the cadets the chance to learn about areas of policing including crimes, airwaves (police radios), mental health, police dogs, anti-social behaviour, diversity and drugs and alcohol.
Cadets get to tour the Police Investigation Centre in Great Yarmouth and visit the James Paget Hospital, Great Yarmouth Fire Station and the Operational and Control Centre in Wymondham.
The group at Great Yarmouth also get to share in team building activities with police cadets from Thetford and King's Lynn, as well as assisting with community events.
PCSO Michelle Clarke said: 'The cadet sessions give young people the opportunity to get a good insight into how the police work, what we do and how we do it.
