Volunteer Police Cadets from Braintree and Uttlesford made a trip to Westminster on February 12 to develop their understanding of law and democracy.

Around 15 cadets, who are at various stages of their training, visited new Scotland Yard, Buckingham Palace and watched the changing of the guard before heading to the Palace of Westminster where they learned how the Houses of Commons and the House of Lords contribute to the day-to-day workings of parliament.

Essex Police’s Volunteer Police Cadets co-ordinator, Neil Dibell said: “It was a really informative day out and fascinating for the cadets to experience all the history and tradition of the building.

“Many of our cadets have aspirations to one day join the force so it was really insightful for them to hear how laws are introduced. I would like to thank James Cleverley MP for helping to make this trip possible.”

The Volunteer Police Cadets is a uniformed voluntary organisation, supported by police, and open to young people aged 13-18 from across Essex.
