ON Tuesday 21 March, the Thurrock Volunteer Police Cadets had their “Passing-Out” ceremony held at Thameside School on Manor Road in Grays.
The cadets completed their 12 week programme, have met the required standard and so received a certificate from Superintendent Andrew Mariner in front of their Cadet Leaders Ian Ried, Inspector Lee Argent, Detective Superintendent Stuart Hooper, alongside Inspector Emma Matthews, Essex Police’s cadet Lead and also the family members of the Cadets.
The evening started with an introduction from Detective Superintendent Stuart Hooper, and then the Cadets, led by Senior Cadet Jasmine Collier marched into the hall. There they were inspected by Superintendent Mariner before being awarded their certificates.
Shortly afterward, Jasmine introduced some of our senior cadets who were then awarded their Certificates towards their NVQ’s by Superintendent Mariner.
A spokesperson said: “We are massively proud of all of our cadets and what they have achieved, and whether they are using the programme as a platform to join the police service or just as an experience to assist in their next endeavour we will continue to support them every step of the way.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Thameside Primary school for allowing us to utilise their building for our Thurrock Cadets programme”.
