Andover Police Cadets

It was a real pleasure to drop in to see the Andover Police Cadets. I last saw them just after they had got going, and so it was wonderful to see how the squad has grown, and what a charming group of young people they are.

I took part in a training exercise, on interview techniques, which was both useful and at times hilarious, and chatted to the youngsters. It was heartening to hear how many of them plan to become officers eventually and it gives me hope that the future of the police service is very bright.
