Special Sergeant Jeremy Kaye joined Hertfordshire in 2018 and says he’s loved almost every minute since starting the application process!
The unpaid volunteer police officer works in the safer neighbourhood team in Hertsmere.
“The most important and enjoyable part for me is how closely everyone works to support the local diverse community,” he explained. “I am also the chair of the Hertfordshire Jewish Police Association allowing me to interact with the local community to show how policing truly is a diverse role, for everyone.
“I was inspired to join to show my (Jewish) community that policing really is a ‘job’ for Jewish women and men and that by working from inside the constabulary a greater understanding can, and is, being built. I also had a desire to show the diverse community that it’s best to work together in local neighbourhoods to achieve our joint aims.
“I chose Herts because it is both my local constabulary and one of the most friendly and interactive. I meet people who ask if they should be a police officer and I say yes, particularly in Hertfordshire!”
