A recruitment fair is being held tonight offering people the chance to volunteer for the county police force.
Volunteering opportunities on offer will vary from giving out crime prevention advice, to working with a local safer community team, helping with projects with young people and spotting speeding drivers.
The event will take place from 6.30pm to 9pm at police headquarters at Wootton Hall, in Northampton.
The evening will start with a talk from Chief Inspector Fay Tennet, after which volunteers will be able to meet with departments from across the force and find out more about the volunteering roles on offer.
Chief Insp Fay Tennet, head of community safety, said: “Becoming a police support volunteer is an excellent opportunity to experience different aspects of policing, whether you want to help your community, develop new skills, get back into work, meet new people or pursue a career within the police service.
“I hope that as many volunteers as possible are able to attend the evening – we have a wide variety of volunteer roles on offer with something to fit all types of skills, experience and backgrounds.
“Policing is a 24-hour-a-day business so whatever people can offer we are able to be flexible.”
