23rd July 2021

Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert was delighted to join over 50 Volunteer Police Cadets for the 2nd National Volunteer Police Cadet Quiz.

The Volunteer Police Cadets scheme enables young people to be more aware of policing and its role in communities, it also embeds an ethos of positive citizenship that is vital to becoming a well-rounded adult. The scheme helps to build strong foundations for a positive future.

Jeff Cuthbert, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent said: “I was thrilled to be invited to take part in the quiz with young Police Cadets from across the United Kingdom.

“My office is very proud of the work of the Gwent Police cadets; they play a very important role in our communities. 

“Over the past year, I know the cadets have continued to support their communities. They have become pen pals to people in residential care and local hospitals and have endeavored to meet throughout the pandemic to gain more skills that will help them in the future. I commend their dedication and compassion.

“I would like to thank all Gwent Police Cadets for taking part and the NXT Gen Team who have been invaluable to encouraging young people in Gwent to become cadets. I look forward to taking part in more activities in the future.”
