Volunteering at this force

Derbyshire is an economically, culturally and ethnically diverse county, with a population of more than one million people. The county ranges from the vibrant city of Derby to former mining communities and the moorlands of the Peak District National Park, which attracts 10 million visitors each year.

Derbyshire Constabulary have a number of growing volunteer schemes, including Volunteer Police Cadets, Special Constables and Police Support Volunteers (PSVs). The Constabulary welcomes volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Volunteers from rural areas, with language skills or from our diverse minority communities are particularly welcome to apply.

The Cadet scheme is aimed at 11-18 year olds who want to learn about policing and are keen to be involved in a youth group working alongside local communities. Cadets complete a course with Derby University alongside their duties. The course offers eligibility to study criminology at the University without other academic entry requirements.

Special Constables play a key role in crime reduction, detection and incident response. By providing visible uniformed presence, Specials help to reduce fear of crime and promote confidence within communities. They can either work with a Safer Neighbourhood or reactive team, helping implement lasting solutions to local issues.

The Police Support Volunteer scheme aims to attract people who can help the police by bringing skills and experience in a variety of roles. Police Support Volunteers support and enhance the work of police officers and staff, helping deliver a high quality service and strengthen links with the community.

Across the county there are over 220 Specials and 100 Police Support Volunteers. In 2017 they gave 60,000 hours of their own time to help achieve policing priorities including preventing and reducing crime, protecting vulnerable people and providing reassurance.
