On 10th November I attended the City of London Police Passing Out Parade and Youth Police Cadet Q&A. The Parade featured 22 new officers and included speeches from the Lord Mayor and the Commissioner of the City of London Police, and music from the Band of the Grenadier Guards.

The Youth Police Cadet Q&A was led by Islington Volunteer Police Cadet, Cally MacDonald and focused on the experience of the new officers during their 15 weeks of training, as well as what led them to join the police force, and their advice to those who may be interested in a future career with the City of London Police.

PC Joy Palmer, PC Lee Theakston and PC Guiseppe Vaccaro took part in the panel and it was chaired by Detective Chief Inspector Kate MacLeod.
Congratulations to all the officers who successfully completed their training and Passed Out on 10th November and thanks to the Corporation of the City of London for organising this memorable event.
