Police Community Support Volunteers

Could you make a real difference to your community?

Do you want to play a vital role in supporting frontline policing?

Are you looking for a unique and rewarding volunteer role where no two days are the same? One where you’ll help solve basic crime enquiries, assist in local incidents and get to the heart of neighbourhood issues?

Durham Constabulary are recruiting Police Community Support Volunteers (PCSVs) to provide a new uniformed presence to patrol in communities and focus on local priorities.

This is a brand new role which will see successful applicants support frontline policing in neighbourhoods across County Durham and Darlington, where they will be mentored by fulltime officers.

PCSVs will be involved in neighbourhood policing and will take part in foot patrol and solving basic problems. They will build positive relationships with the local community and support local initiatives, like Community Speed Watch and PACT priorities (Police and Communities Together).

They will also support police during planned operations, local events and other initiatives, and will work with victims and witnesses where appropriate.

Applications open on Monday 29 January 2018 and close on Monday 12 February 2018.

Applicants must be able to commit a minimum of four hours a week for at least 18 months. Candidates will also be subject to a selection procedure and vetting process.

Successful applicants will be based within a neighbourhood beat team and will be supported by fulltime officers.

Travel expenses, uniform and training is provided.
