PCC Ron Hogg supports volunteer police cadet scheme
An exciting new Volunteer police cadet scheme will start a recruitment process for its first group of young people this month in Darlington.
The scheme, which will be ran by Durham Agency Against Crime (DAAC), who boasts national and regional recognition for its other very successful youth engagement projects, will launch in Darlington recruiting 15 young people aged 13-17 yrs old to take part in an action-packed program covering education workshops, community support and help, problem solving local issues and activities including the Duke of Edinburgh.
Bryan Russell Executive Manager DAAC “we are delighted and proud to be running this project alongside Durham Constabulary, who are supporting us with valuable resources on a volunteer basis to provide an exciting project which will start in Darlington followed by other areas within the County.”
The scheme has been given huge support from Police and Crime Commissioner Mr Hogg, who said: “This is an excellent scheme which supports our strategy to engage with young people and also recognises the tremendous amount of work that young people give to communities.”
If you are interested or know anyone who maybe please follow the link from the DAAC website: www.daac.org.uk, and follow the instructions to apply.
All secondary schools in Darlington will also have full information on the new scheme.
