Sea Cadets learn of Safer Neighbourhood team's role in community

Posted on 24th April 2013

A group of young Sea Cadets sailed in to Buxton police station to find out more about policing in their neighbourhoods.

The Buxton cadet group were given an illustrative talk by officers from Fairfield Safer Neighbourhood Team during the visit, on Wednesday, April 17.

PC Graham Mason and PCSOs Michaela Daniels and Patrick Haley spoke to the teenagers about their individual roles and how they work together as part of the team.

They were also told about policing initiatives, how officers tackle a wide variety of crimes and what the team members do while they are on duty in and around Buxton.

PCSO Michaela Daniels said: “The Sea Cadets and the staff who came with them really enjoyed themselves and seemed to take a lot away from the chat.

“It’s important for members of the public, especially younger generations, to know about policing in their area and who is responsible for keeping their community safe from a police point of view.

“We tried to make it as engaging and informative as possible and it won’t be the last time we’ll be meeting with local community groups.”
