We’ve welcomed six new volunteer Police Cadets into the scheme at Chesterfield at an official attestation ceremony.
The youngsters, their parents and families, along with fellow current Police Cadets, came along to the ceremony at Chesterfield Police Station on Thursday, January 26.
Each new cadet was asked to take an oath in front of senior officers, and there were presentations from the cadet group about their work.
The Cadets scheme is aimed at 13-18 year olds who want an insight into the police and are keen to be involved in a police-orientated youth group working alongside their communities.
PCSO Darryl Hegarty is one of the coordinators for the Police Cadet group in Chesterfield. He said: “It was great to see so many family members come along to the event which is a proud moment for our cadets.
“It is the second time we’ve held an attestation for our new cadets from the Chesterfield and Amber Valley areas, and we are really looking forward to working with them in the future.”
