Cadets shine at national competition

 Published on: 13th August 2018   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police Cadets from the Hertford and Ware and St Albans and Harpenden groups travelled to Scotland to represent the county for the National Cadet Competition. 

The annual event took place at the Scottish Police College in Tulliallan, between August 3 and 5 where a total of 21 teams from across the UK competed in 14 different activities.

The activities included a written test, cycling, baton relay, a pedal car grand prix, life-size ‘Hungry Hippos’ and an observation test among many other physically challenging events.

After three days of tough competition, Hertford and Ware Cadets took second place for the second year running and St Albans and Harpenden, who were winners of this year’s County Cadet Competition in Hertfordshire, placed sixth.

“It was a brilliant weekend and a great experience for all the cadets involved,” said Sergeant Steve Alison, who leads St Albans and Harpenden Cadets. “To come sixth among such strong competition is very commendable and I’m really proud of the hard work and dedication shown by my team.”

Detective Constable Rob Scott, who leads Hertford and Ware Cadets, said: “This was an incredible achievement for our team, especially as we were a person short, due to a late withdrawal through injury. This is the third time we have taken part in the competition and have gone from strength to strength each year due to excellent leadership and teamwork.”
