A teenage cadet who is among his unit’s most committed members despite juggling studying and a part-time job has received a Jack Petchey Award.

Jamie Flint, 17, attends Barking and Dagenham’s police cadets and was among 130 youngsters from across the capital to be recognised at the Kensington Great Hall on Sunday.

Jamie, who is also a St John Ambulance cadet, was praised for being a keen volunteer and an “invaluable member of the unit”.

Currently the head cadet, he will become a junior cadet instructor when he turns 18.

As a Jack Petchey winner, Jamie received £250 for his unit, which he spent on new maps, as well as a medal and certificate.

Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt said: “It’s fantastic to be part of this ceremony to celebrate the young people of our volunteer police cadets.”
