West Midlands Police Cadets Safeguarding Statement.

The Volunteer Police Cadet (VPC) scheme is a national programme designed to provide a safe and secure environment where young people can meet with others and learn about policing and policing issues, contribute to community initiatives and take part in police organised activities and events. Allowing young people to have fun is at the heart of the experience too.

West Midlands Police is a provider of the VPC scheme through a number of Cadet Units across the force area. Each unit has a leader team comprising of police staff, police officers and adult volunteers, who follow policies, programme and procedures overseen by the Citizens in Policing Team, based at Lloyd House.
Our police cadets and the police staff, police officers and adult volunteers who support our cadet units all come from a wide variety of different backgrounds, so we will all uphold the highest standards in safeguarding and supervising our children, young people and adults at risk.

We will ensure that everyone involved in our Volunteer Police Cadet scheme knows what is expected of them, so that we can promote trust and confidence in what we do in our young people and the adult support networks that surround them.

We will build and maintain a culture where our young people and vulnerable adults are respected and listened to, know what safeguarding matters are and how they can confidently report any concerns they may have.

We will give equal priority to keeping our young people and adults at risk safe from all types of harm and abuse, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion, belief, sex or sexual orientation (all defined as protected characteristics within the Equality Act 2010).

We will ensure that all of our VPC staff and leader teams are checked and vetted by us prior to being able to participate in cadet unit work and activities, and will undergo a programme of continuous training for as long as they support the cadet scheme.

West Midlands Police is a Disability Confident Leader - the highest level an organisation can achieve under the scheme run by the Department of Work and Pensions.  As part of our commitment we operate a ‘Disability Confident Interview Scheme’ - all candidates who declare a disability and meet the essential criteria for the role will be offered an interview.  

It is important to note that there may be occasions where it is not practicable or appropriate to interview all disabled people who meet the essential criteria for the job. For example: in certain recruitment situations such as high-volume, seasonal and high-peak times, the employer may wish to limit the overall numbers of interviews offered to both disabled people and non-disabled people. In these circumstances, the employer could select the candidates who best meet the essential criteria for the job, as they would do for non-disabled applicants.
