Guided tour and a council lesson for city police cadets
POLICE cadets were given a guided tour and lesson in how the council operates after an invitation from the Deputy Lord Mayor.
Councillor Chaz Singh welcomed about 20 of the West Plymouth Police Cadets, which was formed last year by PCSO Dave Harris, of the neighbourhood team for Kings Tamerton and Weston Mill.
PCSO Harris said: "The Deputy Lord Mayor requested the cadets attend the civic centre and he was very interested in the work they do and their experiences.
"The cadets loved it and they asked him lots of questions.

"He showed them the council chamber and they sat where the councillors do, using the microphones to interview him.
"They told him about the different things they take part in, such as the forthcoming Halloween operation where they will all be going out in the run-up to the night and reassuring vulnerable and elderly people.
"I think the Deputy Lord Mayor recognised the similarity between councillors and the police cadets as they are people who greatly care about the area that they live in."
A growing number of police cadet groups have been set up in Plymouth over the past couple of years, assisting police in a number of activities including letter drops, crime prevention initiatives, drills, inspection, charity events and much more.
The voluntary scheme is for young people between the ages of 13 and 18.
