The police force is to hold a recruitment fair in Corby to offer advice on volunteering for the force.

Staff, officers, special constables and cadets will be at the Corby Cube in George Street, from 5pm until 9pm on Thursday, February 6, to talk about joining the force as a volunteer.

Advice will be available on all the volunteering opportunities on offer, including becoming a special constable or joining the cadet scheme for young people.

Other volunteer roles vary from spotting speeding drivers as part of Community Speed Watch, working with local safer community teams, behind the scenes roles in departments including the intelligence bureau and hate crime unit, joining the Street Watch community patrol initiative and acting as a crowd member in public order and riot training.

Chief inspector Gary Ashton said: “We have a wide variety of roles on offer with something to fit all types of skills, experience and background.

“Joining the police as a special constable, cadet or volunteer is an excellent way to experience different aspects of policing, whether you want to help your community, develop new skills, get back into work, meet new people or pursue a career within the police service.

“I hope that as many volunteers as possible are able to attend the evening in Corby. We have a wide variety of volunteer roles on offer with something to fit all types of experience and backgrounds. Policing is a 24 hour-a-day business so whatever people can offer we are able to be flexible.”
