 Police Cadet Force,Taunton
PCSO 9861 Richard Oaten has contacted the council to say that he is also a Police Cadet Leader at the Taunton Unit. He informs us that the cadets attend various events during the year supporting the Crime Reduction Stands. He asked that if anybody had a date in mind for this stand to attend a fete, safety days, or other event, would they please contact him, and he will try to accommodate the request.

The Cadet Unit are also involved with the Farm Watch Scheme, and any farmers wishing to join the scheme should let Richard know. The team regularly visits the West Crewkerne Area, and will also sign up anyone wishing to join.
