    Can anyone give me on advice on whether it is worth joining the police cadets? As I was watching videos and I am now 17 and really want to become a police officer but it looked so embarrassing the things they were doing in the videos like playing stupid games etc also they all looked about 13 years old😂 anyone had experience and could tell me if it’s worth my time joining them at this age?

    I'm not sure its worth joining now because as you say most people I know in police cadets are about 13-15 years old. I do believe there is a programme I think Special Constables or something you can join when you're 18, and you could always try volunteering or getting work experience at your local police station. I'm not saying don't join cadets because you're older though; look at a few branches and see if any would be a good fit.
