Get involved

There are many ways in which you can help improve community safety in your neighbourhood and support victims of crime:

Local Police Volunteer Cadet scheme

Kensington and Chelsea police have a local police volunteer cadet scheme. It is aimed at young people aged 10 to 18. Cadets learn and practise a whole range of skills and activities including drill, first aid, map reading and team building exercises.

Cadets meet once a week and do activities that usually include a drill/inspection, physical activity, a guest speaker or input on a police related topic. Cadets get involved in other activities at weekends and in school holidays; such as camping trips.
