Police Support Volunteer Roles

Police Support Volunteers assist police officers, staff and other volunteers to address policing issues that matter most to people locally. They bring a wide range of skills and experience from all sorts of backgrounds.

They join the volunteering programme for many reasons – but they all have one thing in common - they want to help Leicestershire Police in making life better for communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Volunteers undertake various unpaid roles such as monitoring CCTV footage, delivering crime reduction advice and providing administrative support to Neighbourhood officers. There are many different opportunities to volunteer in both the City and County and new roles are constantly being identified where volunteers can assist police officers and staff.

Don’t worry if you do not have any formal qualifications, we are more interested in your ability to communicate effectively and your commitment and enthusiasm to work in an environment where confidentiality, honesty and integrity are important.

We would also need you to meet our security vetting and eligibility criteria and be able to work as part of a team, with minimum supervision if required. You can access the Security Vetting Form here and the Verification of Identification and Right to Work in the UK Form here.
