South Tyneside Volunteer Police Cadets were busy last month as they got involved in a number of community initiatives across the borough.

Throughout April the cadets helped the local neighbourhood policing team with patrols in Horsley Hill, Cleadon Park and Temple Park to help tackle anti-social behaviour.

Earlier in the month local officers organised a Spring Clean Up of Cleadon Park which saw local community groups, including the Volunteer Police Cadets, clean up rubbish in the park. Cadets have also carried out a Village in Bloom Clean Up in Westoe Village.

They helped out with Community Speedwatch in Hebburn - tackling local concerns about speeding in the area and spent some time at SafetyWorks! the interactive safety centre in Newcastle.

And they ensured families had a great day out on Good Friday by carrying out patrols along the seafront and got involved at the White Horse family fun day.

Recently, the cadets also received a visit from an asylum seeker who talked about her story and about refugees and asylum seekers to raise awareness and increase the cadets understanding.

South Tyneside Cadet Leader Police Community Support Officer Gayle Muizelarr said: "Our volunteer police cadets are an absolute credit to us and it's great to see them get involved with so many events and initiatives and this is just an example of they types of things they are involved in throughout the year.

"We really do value their support and know our local communities do as well, where ever the cadets go they always great fantastic feedback and we're really proud of their work."
