Did you know volunteers help us do everything from protecting victims of fraud to planning drone operations?
This week is Volunteers’ Week, so we want to shine a light on the amazing work of those who give their time to the force.
From our special constables who respond to incidents just like their regular police officer colleagues, to the chaplains who give up their time to be there when others need it most – there are so many ways to give back at Derbyshire Constabulary.
Sarah Robbins, Citizens in Policing Support and Development Officer, said: “When I started this job I had no idea about the variety of roles being carried out by our volunteers.
“As well as our special constables, we have almost 100 volunteers doing everything from driving mobile police stations to acting out scenarios for officer training.
“All of our volunteers give up their time to support our officers and staff, ultimately meaning we can offer a better service to the public.”
We are currently looking for volunteer cadet leaders, a role which is a great development opportunity and offers a variety of training, from safeguarding to leadership training. If you think you’ve got what it takes, find out more about the cadet leader role here.
