Warwickshire is a safe place to live and crime figures remain low. However, we can all play a part in reducing crime even further and helping to improve community safety. There are a wide range of opportunities for people who want to help make a safer, more secure Warwickshire.

Warwickshire Police Cadets
Warwickshire Police Police Cadets is a volunteer scheme for young people which has been operating in Leamington and Nuneaton since 2014. The aim of the scheme is to support Warwickshire Police’s strategy of engagement with young people throughout the force area.
It is aimed at young people who wish to be part of a two year programme that offers an opportunity to gain a practical understanding of policing and develop their spirit of adventure and good citizenship.
Cadets support local policing priorities through volunteering, working with partner agencies and positive participation in their communities.
They take part in a variety of activities including self-defence training, marching, fitness, team building, role playing and Outdoor events.
Citizens’ Academies enable people in our communities to develop an insight into policing and experience what their local policing teams do to protect them, their families, friends and colleagues from harm. This is delivered through a 10-week taught course delivered to 25 students aged 18 or over.
Academies are held several times of year in the north and south of the county.
