Volunteers

 

Want to get involved with your community and help serve the people in it?

Have you considered becoming a Police Support Volunteer?

Volunteering is fun and challenging and offers a unique opportunity to develop your skills and experiences, try things you've always wanted to do and learn more about how Sussex Police works. Plus, you'll be rewarded with a diverse and supportive environment that can bring personal benefits and a huge sense of community involvement.

Police Support Volunteers are extremely important to us, helping develop Neighbourhood Policing and, therefore, helping Sussex Police engage and interact more effectively with local communities.

We advertise all of our volunteer vacancies here when they become available. If there are no current vacancies but you would like to know more about volunteering please contact the Force Neighbourhood Watch and Volunteer Manager Mark Rendall by calling 101, extension 540111.

What to expect

The Sussex Police Support Volunteer Programme was launched in January 2009, with the aim of encouraging individuals to get involved and serve their community by becoming a volunteer.

We currently have over 100 Volunteers who assist in police stations across the county in a range of roles. We hope to increase these numbers by welcoming you to the team.

All kinds of people volunteer, across a wide age range, with a variety of different backgrounds, skills and life experiences. A Police Support Volunteer is a member of the community who assists at police stations or administrative centres, conducting a variety of tasks.

For example, one of the many successful tasks which Volunteers are performing is the staffing of rural police stations, dealing with enquiries and calling back members of the public and letting them know the result of their call. This provides reassurance and helps build public confidence in the Police.

You can learn more about the kind of opportunities available by looking at our current vacancies.

The role of Volunteer is designed to enhance the work of the police and provide additional support in the area where the Volunteer lives or works, by working with the local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT). NPTs work with partner organisations and the local community to identify and tackle issues of concern within the neighbourhood.

One of Sussex Police's objectives is to have local Volunteers working with NPTs, which enables officers to benefit from their knowledge of the area and community in addition to the skills and experience they bring with them.

Volunteers play a vital role in assisting police officers and staff, who are then able to concentrate on core policing duties. As a result there are more officers on the streets and improved community support.
