Police Cadets help out at the Bakewell Show

Posted on 11th August 2017

Police Cadets from the Chesterfield area gave up their time to meet and greet residents and offer advice on security during a rainy Bakewell Show.

The group attended the event to help officers set up and manage a police stall for three days between Tuesday, August 1 and Thursday, August 3.

They created a Vlog (video blog) to help share their experience, which they uploaded to the Derbyshire Constabulary’s Volunteer Vlogs YouTube channel and shared on their own Twitter account.

PC Kim Holden, North Division’s Volunteer Police Cadet Coordinator, said: “We had three fantastic days, despite the wet weather, where our cadets helped engage with local residents and visitors, offered advice around crime prevention and safety and a point of contact for people to speak about any concerns.

“I would like to thank all the cadets who gave up their free time to come along to help, they did a great job and I feel incredibly proud of their enthusiasm and efforts. They’ve also made a brilliant video sharing their experiences, and I would encourage people interested in the work of our Police Cadets to give it a watch.”

The Derbyshire Constabulary Volunteer Vlogs channel sets out to highlight the extensive work carried out by our volunteers, from Police Support Volunteers (PSVs) to Police Cadets and the Special Constabulary.

It also gives our vloggers a voice, and a chance to share their experiences as volunteers with Derbyshire Constabulary.
