Kimberley local Daniel Carrington was playing footy with Fitzroy Crossing Police Station’s OIC when he decided to become cadet.

Daniel says his decision was initially met with a loss of trust from many of his family and friends, but he stuck it out, driven by a desire to see a strong relationship between his community and law enforcement.

“Everyone’s all friendly with the police now,” the 25-year-old says.

Hear the aboriginal cadet’s full story in the video below and how he’s now being told by kids that they want to grow up to be police officers.
