PCC praises Hertfordshire Cadets for leadership course success
Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd has praised two Hertfordshire Cadets for their success in passing a brand new regional leadership course.
Ella Gregg (North Herts) and Jamie Head (St Albans and Harpenden) were presented with certificates rewarding their passing of the first ever Eastern Region Senior Cadet Leadership Course – a three day residential training programme bringing together nearly 20 Cadets from Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire Suffolk and Essex.
The course, the first of its kind in the region, has been developed by the Metropolitan Police Service for cadets aged 16-17, teaching effective methods of leadership and how they can be implemented in practical exercises. In addition to passing the course, the Hertfordshire duo received excellent feedback from instructors around their conduct and attitude on the away weekend.
Steven Alison, Lead Instructor for Hertfordshire’s Cadet scheme, said: “We are thrilled two of our Cadets were able to represent us regionally at this course, which is a brand new move in the region in Cadet training. We are extremely proud of their achievements not only for their own personal development but also as an inspiration to their peers.”
Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd said: “This new course is a great way for Cadets not only to further but sharpen their skills, for their work within the Cadets but also as wider applicable life skills.  I am particularly pleased to see Cadets from our county raising the bar not only in regards to course achievements but in personal conduct and enthusiasm alongside regional counterparts. Courses such as this are vital in encouraging and developing young people to get involved in policing and community safety. ”
