Re­cruits sought for cadet group

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

CHESHIRE Po­lice is launch­ing a new Cadet group in Mac­cles­field.

It’s free to join, with uni­form and boots pro­vided.

Cadets are given first aid train­ing and learn about foren­sics at a crime scene, how to solve a crime and how to record in­for­ma­tion and du­ties in a po­lice notebook.

They also get to at­tend a for­est camp to take part in raft­ing and team build­ing ex­er­cises, plus a visit to a de­ten­tion cen­tre and a trip to see how the Roads Po­lice man­age an ac­ci­dent.

Emma Kerr, cadet co-or­di­na­tor, said: “It’s a great way to make a new group of friends and of­fer some­thing to your lo­cal com­mu­nity, as half the time is spent with the po­lice and half do­ing vol­un­tary work such as sup­port­ing younger chil­dren with school or sports events, or as­sist­ing with lo­cal com­mu­nity groups.”

The Mac­cles­field group will meet ev­ery other Mon­day, be­tween 7pm and 9pm, at Tyther­ing­ton High School. Prospec­tive cadets must fill in an on­line ap­pli­ca­tion be­fore Sun­day, De­cem­ber 11.

The cadets are also run­ning a com­pe­ti­tion to win tick­ets to the Lantern Walk at Ch­ester Zoo. Any­one can en­ter, fol­low the cadets on Twit­ter @ CheshireCadets.
