St Albans police cadets have won an award for their contributions to the local community.

Members of the group, who are aged 13 to 18, learn about police procedures and the law, working alongside local officers to play a vital role in community events, engaging with members of the public and educating them on crime prevention.

The certificate of recognition was presented to group leader Inspector Steve Alison by the local mayor, during a meeting of the city and district council earlier this month.
