A POLICE cadet from Pembrokeshire has been recruited to assist the Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed.
Three cadets will help Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed Sara Edwards in her official duties and ceremonial tasks as local representative of Her Majesty the Queen, including Will Lloyd, from Pembrokeshire.
He will be joined by Ffion Jenkins of Carmarthenshire and Rhodri Hughes of Ceredigion.
They will provide additional support alongside the military cadets who already work with the Lord Lieutenant.
Chief Constable Mark Collins said: “The three cadets have been selected by their Neighbourhood Policing Teams in recognition of the significant contribution they have already made to the Police Cadets’ programme.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our cadets and I am pleased to support the Lord Lieutenant in this exciting and important development.”
Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed Sara Edwards said: “As Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Dyfed I am delighted to appoint three Lord-Lieutenant police cadets representing all three counties of Dyfed. It is the first time that this has happened and I look forward to their involvement in the course of my official duties. They will be joining the Lord-Lieutenant cadets from the Armed Forces who already accompany me to official engagements and on Royal visits and I very much hope that as a result of their involvement in the Lieutenancy that more young people may be encouraged to join the cadet scheme.”
