Sup­port for cadet unit

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

LLANELLI AM Lee Wa­ters gave his sup­port to the newly formed Vol­un­teer Po­lice Cadet Unit this week.

Aimed at 14-18 year olds, the weekly meet­ings of cadet unit aim to pro­vide young peo­ple with op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“The aims are geared to steer young peo­ple away from a life of crime by cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for them to flour­ish along the right path in life,” said unit leader PC Vanessa Price.

The new cadet unit is meet­ing weekly in the Drill Hall, TA Cen­tre at Mur­ray Street, Llanelli.

“It was lovely to meet the first re­cruits and I hope it thrives. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for teenagers to get in­volved in an ac­tiv­ity that as well as be­ing fun will also give them in­sights into wider so­ci­ety” Mr Wa­ters said.
