Learn transferrable skills and give something back to your community in a full-uniformed public-facing volunteer role.
Attached to a district Community Safety Unit (CSU) you will join full-time police community support officers (PCSOs) and regular police constables to carry-out foot and mobile patrols. You will provide additional support to the following units:
You will need to work as part of a team to resolve community issues and will be given a range of designated powers. You will receive a uniform, be fully trained and mentored by full-time staff, and must complete a portfolio, to ensure you have gained the necessary skills and confidence before gaining independent patrol status. We will provide you with IT training and full access to our systems for you to perform this front-line role.
Full training will be given over a few weekends to induct you into the force, provide you with the basic skills and understanding, and support you towards mentored operational patrol status. You will learn a lot about yourself during the training phase, where the aim is to coach and develop you both as an individual and part of a team.
There is a 16 hours per month (four hours per week) minimum contribution for this role, although flexibility is given for personal commitments outside of volunteering hours. Eligibility is subject to passing a medical and fitness test.
