New blood is being sought by South Yorkshire Police for volunteer roles who work alongside full time officers and their support staff.

Those signing up will help to improve the force’s visible policing strategy while reducing crime and antisocial behaviour.

One option is to become a Community Safety Volunteer, working alongside police officers helping victims of crime, providing them with reassurance and crime prevention advice.

South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright said: “Police forces are having their budgets slashed by the Government but there is still very important work to be done with limited resources.

“This opportunity for increasing the number of volunteers working with the police will bring even more positive outcomes in our community.

“This is not South Yorkshire Police looking for free labour, it is actually about giving the public the opportunity to get involved in local policing and building stronger links between their communities and the police.”
