Hertsmere Volunteer Police Cadets hold parade at Merryfield School in Borehamwood
Cadets turned out in force to help celebrate their annual parade.
The Hertsmere Volunteer Police Cadets held the event at Merryfield School, in Theobold Street, Borehamwood, last night.
The 13 to 16-year-olds showed off their marching skills, before giving a presentation on their progress throughout the year.
And six new cadets were sworn into the volunteering group, who meet weekly to learn about police procedures.
Teenage cadets Phelim O’Neill and Lewis Gaylor were also handed the leaders cadet award at the ceremony yesterday.
President of the Cadets, Councillor John Donne, said: “It was a great evening. The cadets reflected on what they have done over the last year and I am really impressed with how far they have come.
“The cadets help the kids grow up as disciplined, good citizens and last night I really saw that in action. I am very proud of them all.”
The celebrations were also attended by the cadet’s families, as well as by Deputy Mayor Dan Griffin, Superintendant Mick Ball and Chief Inspector of Hertsmere, Dan Patient.
