Officers from the Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team are set to host a community event to show an insight into the role of a special constable.
The team will be setting up shop outside the Bakewell Enquiry Office on Granby Road to give people the opportunity to come along and find out more about the volunteering role.
The event will coincide with the national volunteer's week and will take place between 1pm and 7pm on Wednesday, June 3.
During the day, the team will be offering advice on boosting security over the summer months as part of Operation Illuminate. They will also be encouraging residents in the rural and farming communities to sign up to the FarmWatch initiative to help cut crime.
Sergeant Andy Wordsworth from the town's Safer Neighbourhood team said: "This event is all about giving people the chance to learn more about the role of a special constable and how they can become involved themselves as part of a national volunteers week.
"The team will also be speaking to residents about any neighbourhood concerns they may have, along with offering crime prevention advice. We look forward to seeing you there."
