Police cadets from Northamptonshire to head to London for the Diamond Jubilee

Volunteer Police Cadets from Northamptonshire Police will be representing the force in London during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

A group of nine cadets, aged 16 to 19, has been invited by the Metropolitan Police to attend the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on Sunday, June 3 – one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river.

The group will be in full uniform on Westminster Bridge for the flotilla in celebration of Her Majesty’s 60 year reign.

A second group of three cadets has been invited by Youth United to represent Northamptonshire Police alongside other voluntary youth groups at the Diamond Jubilee Concert on Monday, June 4.

The lucky cadets have prime position at the Queen Victoria Memorial to watch the event against the spectacular backdrop of Buckingham Palace.

Volunteer Police Cadets were introduced to Northamptonshire Police in June 2011. The Police Cadet scheme is an important part of the force’s extended police family network and is for young people aged between 16 and 19.
