The Police Cadet 1973

A great video showing Police Cadets at the ‘new’ Police HQ, Aykley Heads in the early 70’s.

At the time the cadet school had approx. one hundred & fifty (150) cadets from Durham, Northumbria, Cleveland, North Yorkshire & Junior Firemen.

The cadets were residential in the five accommodation blocks, Finlay, Bede, Harwick, Lambton & Neville.

This film from the British Film Institute is titled ‘The Police Cadet 1973’ although the footage is actually from the early 70’s through to about 1974

From Britain on Film available at BFI Player
