Young people in Broadland are being invited to become police cadets.

The scheme, run by Broadland Police, will give people aged between 13 and 16 the chance to learn about policing and develop new skills.

It is open to people of all abilities and those with special requirements will be accommodated wherever possible.

Police cadets are expected to help out in the community by assisting with local events.

They are taught the basics of policing and will gain an insight into how to deal with road traffic collisions, officer safety and conflict management.

As cadets, there is also the opportunity to visit various departments including the dog section and firearms unit.

Meetings will take place weekly during term time on Thursdays between 6.30pm and 8.30pm. However a venue is yet to be confirmed.
