Police in Plymouth are on the lookout for volunteer drivers as part of the Devon and Cornwall Police volunteer programme.
Volunteers are needed to help drive police officers in and around the city to community meetings. It is hoped that additional drivers will help free up police officer time and to ensure more resources are available on the street when they are needed.
Another 10 volunteer drivers are required to top up the existing pool of drivers, during the following times: Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.00pm for shifts between 2 and 4 hours.
Inductions will include a driving assessment, a tour of the locations of police premises in the Plymouth area and training to ensure each volunteer knows what to do in the event of vehicle breakdown or accident.
The Police volunteers will not wear a uniform or have any police powers, and will not be replacing any roles within Devon and Cornwall Police. They must be over the age of 16 and must pass a strict clearance and have a full driving licence.
Anyone interested in becoming a police volunteer driver should contact Phil Hoare, Police Volunteer Programme Support Manager on (01752) 751572 or email@example.com
