Police Volunteer Recruitment.

North wales Police are looking for people who would like to volunteer some of their time, do you think you may be interested? If so read more about it below.

Police Support Volunteer

Becoming a Police Support Volunteer within North Wales Police is an excellent opportunity to become involved with different aspects of policing and gain experience within a professional and public organisation. It offers the opportunity to meet new people and work as part of a team, engage and interact with people from different communities and backgrounds whilst making a positive contribution to the local community.

By volunteering with us you could play a vital role in helping us deliver and improve the service we provide to communities across North Wales Police.

All kinds of people volunteer, across a wide age range, with a variety of different backgrounds, skills and life experiences. If you have some spare time we will be able to provide opportunities to help you develop yourself, learn new skills and make a difference in the communities.

You will be fully supported in your role as a volunteer, and provided with the appropriate training and updates.

What are Volunteers?

As described by the Home Office a Volunteer is “someone who commits time and energy for the benefit of society, the community, environment and/or individuals, undertaking this freely and by choice, without concern for financial gain”.

A Police Support Volunteer is someone who performs voluntary tasks, at the direction and on behalf of the organisation, through personal choice.

Police Support Volunteers agree to do this without expectation of compensation or financial reward, except for the payment of pre-determined and agreed out of pocket expenses.

There is no obligation therefore when an individual agrees to take on a voluntary role, and no contract of employment is issued. Either party may cancel the voluntary agreement at any time.

All Volunteers are required to sign forms agreeing to the principles of the Data Protection Act and the Official Secrets Act.

What activities or roles do Volunteers do?

Volunteers and the work they carry out are not designed to replace employees; the underlying principle of the agreement is that volunteers compliment and support staff roles. Being a volunteer provides a unique opportunity for individuals to use their skills, experience and local knowledge to make a positive contribution in their community by supporting the work we do.

Opportunities and activities vary from one department to another according to the needs across the Force and in local communities.

For example some of our roles are based within our community teams, specialist units whilst others are office based providing support and coordination for policing operations and teams.

Who can volunteer?

We do not expect formal qualifications for most tasks, but what we are interested in is common sense, dedication and the ability to communicate with people.

You must be over 18. Due to the nature of the Police Service voluntary roles will require security checks to be completed.

You will be subject to the same criteria as all members of the Force, and as such your application may not be accepted if there is a conflict of interest in your professional or personal life.

You can contact Lisa on 01492805398

The Transport Festival is the largest in Wales and one of the U.K.’s best-loved events. It is held in conjuction with the Victorian Extravaganza. Costume, vintage fairground and a host of attractions combine in a unique annual celebration of transport and entertainment heritage within the town. The two events are linked by a free shuttle-bus service.

Don’t forget that the Arriva buses will be going from the coach park on Mostyn Broadway for the duration of the Extravaganza.

If you are travelling by bus, please be patient with the drivers, they will be doing their best in difficult circumstances. Also, don’t forget to keep hold of your ticket, it’s likely that the inspector will be popping on and off buses throughout the weekend.
