The scheme gives primary school children the chance to work with their local police and learn about a host of topics to help keep them and their friends safe. Superintendent Sarah Pitt has been instrumental in setting up the scheme. She said: “I’m really proud we’ve been able to extend the Mini Police scheme, it has proved to be really popular and it’s been encouraging to see how many schools want to get involved and I hope our newest recruits enjoy their new role.” Unique to the Northumbria scheme the Mini Police is led by the force’s Volunteer Police Cadets. Supt Pitt added: “Our Volunteer Police Cadet scheme has ran for a number of years now and we’re very impressed by the young individuals who join the scheme as young teenagers and develop into confident young adults and wanted to give them the opportunity to develop their leadership skills even further and they play an instrumental part in delivering the Mini Police.” Recruitment for the Volunteer Police Cadet scheme is currently open and will run until the end of October. Visit Northumbria Police’s Career website for details on how to apply.
