In late 2016, our volunteer Police Cadets became part of the Northamptonshire Emergency Services Cadets.
This joint partnership between the county’s police, fire cadets and ambulance cadets is open to teenagers aged 13 to 18 and is an independent registered charity.
Units meet across Northamptonshire, offering young people the chance to take an active role in supporting the work of police, fire and ambulance staff and making a positive contribution to their communities.
Alfie has been volunteering as a Cadet for over 4 years, he explains why making a difference to his community is so important to him.
