Stepping up to support our volunteers

Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police have thanked the hundreds of police volunteers who have given up their free time to support their local communities.

It follows a national initiative by Citizen's in Policing who have launched 'Step Up' - a campaign to celebrate the work of specials and volunteers and the valuable contributions they make to policing.

Through a series of short videos featuring special constables and other volunteers, it also aims to raise awareness of the hundreds of volunteering roles available across England and Wales.

Chief Superintendent Charles Hill said: "Volunteers are the life blood of the Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police. Our volunteers are people who are passionate about policing and I thoroughly enjoy working alongside them.

"Whether that's as a neighbourhood watch coordinator, special constable, volunteer police cadet, independent custody visitor volunteer or a police support volunteer.

"On behalf of our communities I want to thank them all for their continued contributions, commitment and dedication."

A new 'Citizens in Policing' website has been created to highlight the many different roles available and make it easier than ever for people to apply. Take a look by visiting citizensinpolicing.net
