Connor is a 15 year old Volunteer Police Cadet. He assists in the community by getting involved in stewarding in local events such as the town show and other local events. Connor helps to crack down on the selling of tobacco, weapons, alcohol, fireworks and other items that are illegally sold to young people. These operations, known as 'Test Purchase' are performed along side Trading Standards Officers. Connor also assists the local Safer Neighbourhood Teams through leaflet drops, crime prevention initiatives, community safety events and street surveys. Other charity work over the last four years includes representing the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in the London Mini Marathon on behalf of the Mayor's Charity Appeal, and, also helping out on bucket collections for charities such as Help for Heroes. Connor has been mugged five times in the last two years, however, it has not broken his community spirit. Connor would find it an honour and a privilege to be a torch bearer, to be chosen would be a positive experience that would last him a lifetime.
