Northamptonshire Police’s volunteer team will be in Wellingborough next week to offer advice on volunteering for the force.

Staff, special constables and cadets will be in Wellingborough all day on Tuesday, January 21, 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, through to acting as a crowd member in public order and riot training.

The team will be on hand to give advice from 10am to 1pm at the ROSE job fair at Wellingborough Library and from 10am to 5pm at the Swansgate shopping centre, near the Sheep Street entrance.

An information evening will also be held from 7pm at Wellingborough police station for young people to find out about joining the police cadets.

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.”
