Volunteering at this force

There are three types of volunteers at North Wales Police – Special Constables, Police Support Volunteers and Cadets, who often work alongside each other in a team approach.

Becoming a volunteer within North Wales Police is an excellent opportunity to become involved with different aspects of policing and to gain experience within a professional and public organisation. It offers the opportunity to meet new people and work as part of a team, by engaging and interacting with people from different communities and making a positive contribution to the local community.

Volunteers from every background play a vital role in helping deliver and improve policing services across their communities.  They bring a variety of skills and life experiences to the team and represent a wide range of age groups, all giving up their free time to support police. Whether they are at home bringing up a family, in full-time employment, between jobs, a student or retired, they are welcomed within the policing family and fully supported to become a volunteer.

Anyone who joins North Wales Police as a volunteer receives full training and support to prepare them for their role. Their work is not designed to replace paid staff; but compliments the work carried out by officers and staff throughout the organisation.

Volunteers for North Wales Police are a crucial part of the organisation and the contribution they make is essential to ensuring safer communities across their policing area. Their work is widely acknowledged and appreciated.
