Went to a great event in Newtown last night. The Dyfed-Powys Police were welcoming 10 (or was it 12) young people into the Force as Volunteer Cadets. Most of the audience was made up of proud parents and friends. Over the next two years these youngsters will have all sorts of opportunity to develop communication skills and engage in various activities. Its a pilot scheme in the Dyfed-Powys area, based on Newtown. Seems a great way to develop understanding between the Police and the policed. So much better than just watching 'The Bill'. Lets hope the scheme turns out to be a success, and is replicated in other areas.
