Students from Meadowgate School in Wisbech enjoyed their official passing out parade to welcome them as volunteer police cadets.
Eight sixth form students took part in the ceremony marking a year ahead of a wide range of voluntary work they will become involved in within the community.
Joining the event was Jason Ablewhite, Cambridgeshire police and crime commissioner and senior police officers, who have all supported the scheme since it began four years ago.
Lisa Mann, a community police support officer in Wisbech, said: “The scheme gives the students a chance to give back to the community and prepares them for the outside world.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity and they all thrive on this programme.
