Speed monitoring – Church Road

Acle Police have confirmed that the mysterious black box on a post in Church Road is a speed monitoring device, put up temporarily to see what speeds people are driving at in the village.

Police Cadets

Broadland Police are now recruiting Police Cadets. Young people who join our police cadet scheme will get the chance to develop skills that will assist them in the job market. Cadets will be recruited between the ages of 13 to 16 years but can remain a cadet until their 18th
birthday. The scheme welcomes young people of all abilities and if a recruit has special
requirements this will be accommodated wherever possible. Cadets assist with leaflet drops, crime prevention initiatives, community safety events and street surveys. Cadets will also get an insight into how to deal with a road traffic collision, first aid, officer safety and conflict management. As cadets they also have the opportunity to visit different departments in the police service, such as Air Support, Dog Section, Firearms Unit, Roads Policing and CSI.
Cadet meetings will take place on a weekly basis during term time on a Thursday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at a venue to be confirmed in Broadland. We provide a uniform to cadets who only need to supply their own black boots. Please contact Broadland Engagement Officer PC Andy Mason at Sprowston on 101 or e-mail
masonad@norfolk.pnn.police.uk if you would like to apply or find out more.
