|Would you like to contribute to Policing in Your Neighbourhood?|
Are you able to commit four hours of your time each week to your local Neighbourhood Policing Team?
If so, then becoming a Community Engagement Volunteer may be the perfect opportunity for you! The most important part of this role will be to improve the engagement we have with our communities and community groups.
This volunteer role is for you if:
You will provide effective community liaison to help us ensure that your local community, council, organisations, groups, partner agencies and individuals are kept informed of our policing activity.
Through your actions, you will make a valuable contribution to reducing the fear of crime and improving communication channels. This will enable our local policing activity to be targeted to address chronic and repeat issues that cause disproportionate harm to your community.
As a Community Engagement Volunteer you will be involved in a rang of activities including:
Your enthusiasm and commitment will help you to integrate into your busy neighbourhood policing team, working alongside Police Officers and Police Staff.
Key to your success as a Community Engagement Volunteer will be your interpersonal and communication skills. You will need to be able to summarise information into concise and informative updates, applying attention to detail to ensure that community messages are always accurate. You may be asked to use technology and social media to engage with our communities but we will support you to do this.
You will need to have administration experience (including the ability to use Microsoft Office programmes such as Word and Excel) and your ability to plan and organise will help you to complete key tasks within your volunteering time with us.
Previous experience of volunteering, community engagement and/or working within police environment would be advantageous but is not essential as you will be fully supported by your policing team.
