Citizens in Policing describes the thousands of people across the UK who give up their time to support the police.

The role of citizens in policing is vital. Our volunteers help us to do more by increasing our numbers and creating closer and  more effective relationships with our communities.

They bring a diverse range of skills to their roles, helping us and improve public confidence in the police.

By embracing the Citizens in Policing ethos we can empower communities through training and support to be able to participate meaningfully in policing of their own neighbourhoods.

You can volunteer for the police in the following ways:

Police Support Volunteers
Can you spare a few hours a week to assist Wiltshire Police's supporting officers and staff? Can you offer professional skills, support in administrative tasks or as educators to the public? Whatever your role Police Support Volunteers make a significant impact on the constabulary and the communities we serve.
If you would like to make a difference in Wiltshire while gaining valuable skills, training and experience, and can commit to volunteering at least 16 hours per month, then the Special Constabulary could be for you.
Aged between 13 and 18 and want to know more about policing? Then Police Volunteer Cadets could be for you. You will be provided with a uniform and undertake a structured training programme during weekly meetings before an attestation and passing out parade. Cadets are given a unique insight into policing with the opportunity to visit different departments across the force.
Watch Schemes
Police Forces and affiliated organisations work together every day to keep our communities safe. Each affiliated organisation specialises in an area which assists the police including crime prevention, pursuing of offenders, missing people or helping the vulnerable.
