Being a North Wales Police volunteer helps you to improve your skills and gain new experiences – whether it’s on the front line as a Special Constable or Police Support Volunteer.
North Wales Police are supporting this year’s Volunteers’ Week - a national celebration of volunteers and volunteering which takes place from 1st to 7th June each year with the aim of recognising, rewarding and recruiting volunteers.
Volunteers make up an important part of the North Wales Police family by playing a vital role in building important links between the police and local communities.
The role of the Special Constable is to assist and support the regular force in meeting local policing needs. They are an important part of the police service and have a vital role to play in the future of policing.
Special Constables undertake valuable work and form a vital link between the regular force and the local community. Special Constables are volunteers, from all walks of life, who want to do something positive for their communities.
With North Wales Police you would be expected to carry out a variety of tasks. Duties could include assisting regulars on patrol, crime prevention work and community liaison projects. Special Constables have the same powers of arrest as a regular Police Officer.
Police Support Volunteers are members of the community who give their time freely to undertake additional duties and activities to those currently performed by the extended policing family, adding great value to the services we already provide.
Volunteers build important links between the police and communities, providing opportunities for individuals to make a positive contribution to their local area.
We are looking for people aged 16 upwards from a wide range of backgrounds and sections of the community.
