PCSO cadets

in November 2003 PCSO cadets were launched by Surrey Police

Six Hersham teenagers are the first in Surrey to take part in a unique police cadet scheme.

Rydens school pupils Rowan Cole, Mark Jackman, Nathan Myerthall, Holly Rowland, Melissa Lucas and Sarah Taylor are Surrey's first Community Support CadetS (PCSCs)

The group all aged 15 will be involved in community projects and will go into schools working with people of their age as well as helping out with events such a Remembrance Parades.

The scheme was triggered by a request from Rowan asking North Surrey Police Chief Insp Derek Mann if a police cadet scheme could be set up in the borough.

Rowan and his friend Mark Jackman were then invited to present a business case to be considered by officers.

He said "I was eager to show there are young people in Walton who care about the local community and wish to make a positive stand.

Elmridge Youth affairs officer Pc Brian Kingston said "What's particularly good to see is young people presenting a postive image to the rest of the community.

So often youths are associated with anti social behaviour and negativity, this is an excellent example of the willingness of young people to work within their local area for the good of others

The scheme is based on the police community support officers which were introduced into the force earlier this year.

Donations from the high sheriff's fund, the north walton partnership and surrey police have given all 6 cadets uniforms based on the pcso ones as well as organised their training

Chief Insp Mann said "Rowan approached us with an idea to engage with the public and also demonstrated a real understanding of the potential conflicts that can exist between the youth and other members of the community

"We were presented with an excellent business case and as result I am delighted to be able to provide support from the local borough team in Elmbridge

Rydens head teacher Ian Wilson said "It is an excellent example of students at Rydens school showing their intiative in wanting to help the community and to make Hersham and Walton a safer place"
PCSO cadets? whatever next? :wink:

Hi there evryone :D ,

I am the person responsible for starting up the Police Community Support Cadets un Surrey. After a long a grolling up hill fight I finally got a Cadet Force set up in Surrey. At the moment it is only small however it will be expanded across the county now the trial has been proved a sucsse.

This website is an excellent tool for PCSO's across the country to chat. There are forums for Police Officers, Police Specials and Police Cadets (I got the competition for that going!! :twisted: ) but now there is a dedicated forum for PCSO's.

I feel privlaged to work alongside PCSO's, PC's reguar and special and help to keep the streets of Surrey the safest in the United Kingdom.

I recommend these site http://www.policecadets.cjb.net and http://www.ukpoliceonline.co.uk Have fun everyone.

:wink:

I know you went to a lot of effort to get that cadet force set up - and as far as I know it is the only PCSO cadet force in the whole of Britain!!
however it will be expanded across the county now the trial has been proved a success.
So .... you are PCSO Cadet Force no. 1 !!!

With the deepest respects what can you possibly as a PCSC? Bearing in mind the total syllabus for an actual PCSO is only 3 weeks!?

Also isn't it a Health and Safety issue regarding cadets patrolling the street? I'm a community ward officer in the Met and couldn't even get approval to run a two week work experience....

Is there a difference between police cadets and PCSC. When I joined Surrey used to send cadets to the met cadet training school at Hendon.

The cadet scheme was disbanded many years ago to save money, (they use to pay you in the good old days).

Now in Bexley we have a fairly large group of Volunteer Police Cadets. They do perform duties at a variety of events. They deliver leaflets and they help on crime prevention days such as marking phones. They also get involved in adventure training activities.

What do the Surrey cadets do? How do you use them? What room for growth is there? What lessons have been learned. I can't see that there is going to be a major difference betwen our old police cadets and the PCSCs, only that it is and will remain good PR for PCSOs in Surrey.
never regret the future.

Excellent idea and what a great way to show what motivated people outside the service can achieve. Brilliant if run and supported properly by the actual police officers involved.

This is exactly what it's all about, and the challenge is to make this a roaring success when faced with the inevitable nay-sayers!

Good luck!

I like the idea of cadets whether it be PC/PCSO etc. As Ibanez said...discipline etc is a good thing and at least it shows some who may think otherwise that some kids are not all bad!....

daniel

ps-I object to the blanket description of "hoodies" as scumbags...I mean, I wear them occasionally and I am a good citizen-lol.

But then I don't ever wear my hoody up or hang about on the street in gangs.... 8) hehe....good boy me :oops:

I think its a great idea teenagers need something to focus on other than drinking and smoking :wink: well the ones in my area do anyway. The only thing I wonder about is how they are perceived by their peers do they get lots of stick about it?
