'Citizens in Policing' is a term used nationally to describe the thousands of people across the UK who volunteer and give up their time to support our police service.
The role of citizens in policing is vital - volunteers increase the capacity of our constabularies, bringing their own valuable skills and expertise to police teams, creating closer and more effective relationships with our communities. These people give up their free time to support in a variety of policing roles for a number of reasons.
Our vision is for Volunteers to use their diverse range of skills to support us in the improving public confidence in the police service by providing the 'Best Possible Service'.
By embracing the Citizens in Policing ethos we can truly empower communities to be able to participate meaningfully in supporting their own neighbourhoods.
