On Wednesday, 25 February Havering borough held the official launch of their first Volunteer Junior Cadet unit at Drapers Academy, Harold Hill.


This forms part of the very successful Police Cadets and is aimed at children aged 10 to 12 years old. It is then hoped that when the children reach 13 years they may wish to progress to the Senior Police Cadets. 

The launch was a great event, attended by Havering’s senior officers.


The Volunteer Junior Cadets currently have 23 youngsters signed up, with places still available.

The Cadets have fun whilst they are taught life skills as well as police-related lessons and practices, mixed in with marching and sports activities. 

For more information on how to join please contact Matt.Ingram@met.police.uk or call him on 01708 779 412.
