There are a number of volunteering options for all ages.
There are lots of different ways in which you can volunteer
Safer Neighbourhood Panels – Panels are made up of local residents, local councillors, the local policing commander and magistrates. The panels influence local policing and community safety, scrutinise the work done by police in the area, give feedback to their community and examine the impact of community resolutions and restorative justice where they live.
Ethics, Transparency and Audit Panel (ETAP) – The ETAP is made up of members of the public, who examine policing in Staffordshire at every level including examining the response of police to incidents and analysing the way they handle complaints about policing. Qualified accountants with 5 years’ management experience are needed on ETAP to help with scrutinising public finances.
Independent Custody Visitors – Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs) check on the wellbeing of people being held in custody by the police.
Youth Commission The members come from a hugely diverse group of organisations across Staffordshire, including the Prince’s Trust, YMCA, Youth Offending Team, Children in Care, schools, colleges and universities.
Space Space provides funs activities for 8 – 17 year-olds during the school summer holiday. The programme is co-ordinated by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and is delivered by a wider collaboration of public and voluntary organisations.
