The organisation was established on 8 March 1977 at Police Training Centre (Pusat Latihan Polis), Jalan Aman, with 90 student members and four students from Sekolah Menengah Jamalul Alam, Sekolah Tinggi Pengiran Raja Isteri and Maktab SOAS.
It was also known during that time as "Pasokan Kedet Polis Di-raja Brunei"
Their activity often consists marching but they also held a camping trip in recreation park or in the forests once in a year and they hold a marching competition between schools or other youth movements. Twice in three years, they participate in Outward Bound Brunei Darussalam. They also rarely hold shooting sessions.
Every Friday morning, the cadets' training consists of marching. Squad leaders give drill commands to the cadets.
The cadets frequently hold a cleaning campaign mostly in Muslim cemeteries, schools or recreational parks.
The candidates will be sent to a corps training centre. The instructor or drill sergeants teach the candidates to give drill commands or perform march drills. They also have a physical and writing test.
The new cadets have to learn march drill movements from their seniors and be measured for their uniform clothing.
