A second volunteer police cadet scheme has been launched at Soham Village College.

The first was set up last year in Peterborough, and is part of a continuing push to encourage young people to be good citizens and participate positively in their communities.

Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright announced the launch, saying: “I am really excited about this new Volunteer Police Cadet Unit which rapidly follows the success of the first cadet unit in Peterborough.

“This continues my commitment in supporting work with young people and engaging them in activities that will benefit the whole community.

“I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the staff at Soham Village College and I am sure that with their help this new unit will be a huge success.”

Deputy headteacher at Soham Village College, George Price, said: “Staff and students are delighted to be hosting a new Volunteer Police Cadet Unit.It will give enrichment opportunities for our young people.”

Participation in the scheme provides accreditation towards formal qualifications and offers evidence of voluntary activities for youth projects such as The Prince’s Trust and Duke of Edinburgh Award.
