Volunteer Police Cadets support south London police event

VPCs meet Cressida DickMet Commissioner Cressida Dick (see left) came to Wimbledon recently, holding a briefing event for police officers and staff from across south London.

With hundreds of people expected to attend, organisers needed support to facilitate and assist those attending.

So, Merton Volunteer Police Cadets stepped up providing a team to welcome guests, help audience members be heard with microphones during debate and supporting Borough Commander Steve Wallace as the host senior officer. The team were personally thanked by the Commissioner and her senior team.

Cadet Serena (ex-Ursuline High School, on her final Cadet duty before going to University) said:

"Meeting the Commissioner today & hearing with colleagues about the future of the Met has been really interesting & I've learned a lot. I'll miss doing great events like this, but I will be coming back!".
