Youngsters in Kettering have been urged to sign up to a police cadet scheme before the deadline later this month.
Cadets, who meet once a week to learn about the police and its functions, also take part in community work with officers, helping with tasks such as victim reassurance and crime prevention.
Anyone wanting to sign up for the two-year scheme should be aged 16 at the start of the course in January 2014, and have been living in the UK for three years.
The deadline is Friday, October 25.
