Goole Policing Team is looking for people in and around Goole to join Humberside Police and become a Community Safety Volunteer.
The Community Safety Volunteer scheme was first established in April 2008 to promote community involvement in policing through volunteering.
The aim of the scheme is to encourage those living and working in the area to use their skills, experience and knowledge to assist and support Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers, Special Constables, support staff and fire service personnel in their daily business.
A team of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and cultures already works across the Humberside force area, making a positive contribution to the area’s communities and using its experiences and skills to enhance the work of the police and fire service.
Matt Sutcliffe, Group Manager Public Safety with the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said: “The Police/Fire volunteer partnership is now firmly established within our toolbox of options for supporting the organisation and helping to make our communities a safer place to live and work. The commitment and professionalism of the volunteers is an absolute privilege to witness and support. It also important to recognise the life experience and skills the volunteers bring to our organisation. Volunteers are firmly embedded into the tapestry of work streams to ensure we are an effective organisation.”
