Fast-tracking vulnerable young people into the police cadets

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


In January 2019, Nottinghamshire Police launched a pilot project named ‘Fast tracking of Vulnerable Young people into the VPC’, working in partnership with the National Volunteer Police Cadets. This nationally pioneering project aimed to trial a new model for enhancing the methodology for engaging vulnerable young people into the VPC programme. This initial evaluation aimed to provide an independent assessment of the programme, documenting progress and identify developmental areas.

Overall, the evidence presented in this report demonstrates how the Nottinghamshire Fast-Tracking Vulnerable Young People into the Cadets Pilot has been very successful. The introduction of a new position, the VPC Youth Engagement Officer, has strengthened Nottinghamshire Police’s commitment to youth engagement and enables more and wider opportunities for young people to positively engage with policing.
