Wisbech Meadowgate Volunteer Police Cadets visited police headquarters to have a tour of the control and dispatch rooms.

The cadets also had the chance to meet police dog Max, who is a drugs, cash and weapons dog (DCW). They also met the handsome police dog, Mitch.

In December students took part in 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 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.

One person said: “We met some of the Meadowgate teachers and students in Morrison’s cafe the other day. What a lovely crowd, we stopped to have a chat with them.”
