Welwyn and Hatfield Police Cadets has always been a popular choice for young people wanting to join Hertfordshire Police Constabulary.

Due to this we normally have a very large waiting list. We have a maximum  capacity of 25 cadets, and openings are rare.

Due to this we hold a recruitment weekend once a year.  we invite everyone from the waiting list to attend the Police Headquarters for a full weekend where they will complete team building activities and challenges to prove they have what it takes to

Join our cadet group.

At the end of this weekend the best of the group will be picked to join Welwyn and Hatfield Police Cadets. Everyone else will be removed from the waiting list and won’t be able to re-apply for our cadet group.
