The Bury Volunteer Police Cadet Unit have found a home at Bury College and believes their recent award for Voluntary Police Cadet Unit of the Year has been helped by Bury College’s facilities and our staff.

With many of the cadets progressing onto the Public Services courses at Bury College once they finish school, we have been able to see the direct progression of so many from cadets to trainee Police Officers once they finish their studies with us. 

Ryan Page, Unit Co-Ordinator for Bury Volunteer Police Cadets, said: “In recent years Bury College has become the home of the Voluntary Police Cadet Unit (VPC). The state-of-the-art facilities and support that the college makes available provides the Bury VPC with strong foundations. From this, we have been able to continually offer young people the opportunity to join a greatly successful volunteer uniform service and give them the skills and experience to help with their future career, whether that be in the Police or other professions.”

“This year Bury Cadets have been fortunate enough to be honoured in the Chief Constables awards being named best unit, this award and continuing success would not be possible without the ongoing support from Bury College.”
