Cadets win in UK awards

ROTHERHAM Police Cadets have won a ‘Certificate of Accreditation’ in the national Sheriff’s Awards.

Supervisor Pc Waller said: “This group of cadets have been especially dedicated in providing positive voluntary work in the community and have shown great motivation.”

The cadets are due to be presented with their awards at Rotherham Town Hall on Wednesday, December 7.
