Be a Volunteer – and play your part to keep Hertfordshire safe


The Constabulary and Police & Crime Commissioner’s Volunteering Strategy was launched in 2014 during National Volunteers Week.


The strategy encompasses a whole range of volunteering opportunities from the highest commitment of being a fully-trained Special Constable, with full police powers, to the more modest Neighbourhood Watch member who ensures their shed is secure following an OWL message received from police warning, of shed burglaries in their neighbourhood.L-R:

Could you be a volunteer?  If you have any spare time, enthusiasm and a skill, knowledge or experience that could help others

Would you volunteer?  If it offered flexibility, interest and made you feel good

Should you volunteer?  To play your part to keep Hertfordshire safe…

And don’t just take it from us, Volunteering England says:

• volunteering offers the chance to give something back to the community and make a difference to the people around you

• volunteering provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge

• regardless of the motivation, what unites all volunteers is that they find it both challenging and rewarding
