Police in Holbeach and Spalding are looking to recruit more support volunters to help keep local communities safe as part of the 1,000 Volunteer Challenge Project.

Volunteer roles can vary but may include supporting local police teams through community engagement, aiding officers and staff dealing with queries from the public and fufilling simple administrative duties such as note taking and filing.

There is a mixture of indoor and outdoor positions to apply for, some more skill intensive than others.

Each part-time job will only take a few hours to complete each week and could make a huge difference to local towns and villages.

Sgt Boxall said: “Lincolnshire has widened the field and we are recruiting volunteers to help with all sorts of police work.

“Any volunteer has to go through security vetting of course and will be properly trained; we also carry out a fairly informal selection process to make sure we get the right people for the right positions.

“We have a number of different roles where we need some help.”

For more information on the application process search for ‘police support volunteers’ on the Lincolnshire Police website or call the Holbeach Police Station on 0300 111 0300to discuss your eligibility.
