The constabulary’s budding officers visited elderly residents last Saturday as part of Operation Christmas Cop.

Cadets gave out the presents, which were paid for by their fundraising efforts throughout the year, and issued winter crime prevention advice.

Sergeant Steve Alison, who leads the St Albans and Harpenden Cadet Unit and introduced the scheme, said: “This social action project is a fantastic way for the cadets to give something back to the community and to spread a bit of Christmas spirit to those most vulnerable at Christmas time.”
