Two bright young Volunteer Police Cadets (VPC) were scored a first when they were High Sheriff Cadets at a recent awards ceremony.

Cadets Billy Cunningham, from Wisbech, and Jade-Lee Davis from St Neots, were awarded as Cambridgeshire High Sheriff Caroline Bewes’ brand new sheriff cadets.

Aged only 17, Jade and Billy were nominated by their VPC leader for their self-confidence, discipline and support to the force.

They were presented with the High Sheriff badge, in a ceremony attended by the High Sheriff and Chief Constable Nick Dean who congratulated the budding recruits on their promotion and thanked them for their dedication to the force at such a young age.

The recently created role of High Sheriff Cadet was introduced to provide assured and professional support for the High Sheriff. The role offers a great opportunity for young police cadets to become part of the county’s Shrieval team and the new cadets will play an important role in supporting the High Sheriff in public events and representing VPCs throughout the county.

Jade and Billy will begin their roles in the upcoming months. The roles will take them all over the county, from official and community engagements such as openings of new community services and charitable events, to attending the Justice Service.

Cadet co-ordinator, Alison Wicking, said she was incredibly proud of the young recruits: “It was a pleasure and a proud moment to witness Jade and Billy receiving their badges from the High Sheriff.

“ The programme enables youngsters to become more self-confident, outgoing and to benefit academically and socially as they learn about and connect with local communities.

“I am sure they will carry out their duties with pride and represent Cambridgeshire Volunteer Police Cadets and the Constabulary to the highest standard."
