Force Opens Applications for Volunteer Roles

20 exciting volunteer roles have become available in Cleveland Police for people to apply for.

The Force is looking to recruit three Community Support Volunteers and 17 Duty Support Volunteers.

Each volunteer role will take an active part in assisting police officers, police staff and the wider community in range of investigations and activities.

Assistant Chief Constable Jason Harwin said: “Volunteering for the police service is an excellent way to gain new skills, boost confidence and become part of a team.

“It is an extremely rewarding role to have within the Force and each volunteer brings a range of talent, enthusiasm and local knowledge which helps us to continue to deliver a fantastic service to our communities.”

Head of Volunteering, Richard Baldwin, said: “If you are looking for worthwhile experience, adventure and to make a real difference in our communities, then becoming a volunteer will allow you to achieve this.

“We are the only Force in the country where our volunteer programme is managed by volunteers. I have run the programme for 3 years at Cleveland Police and have many years of experience prior to this.

“As a Force we want to add to our team of volunteers, it doesn’t matter if you can only give us a small amount of your time or if you haven’t volunteered before as any support is much appreciated.

“We have a number of roles available and are keen to welcome dedicated and eager people into the Force.”

All roles will be subject to vetting, anyone wanting more information or to apply for the volunteer roles can visit https://bit.ly/2ONvfzV . The application window closes at the end of October.
