Have you ever thought about volunteering your services to help the Commissioner, or indeed the Police Force, to help us ensure the delivery of excellent services to the community? Our volunteers make a real contribution to the safety of our communities.
Each volunteer, employed by the Office of the Commissioner, provides a valuable link to local people. They have the opportunity to speak to a range of people through their roles and feed back on how effective policing is in their experience and how they think things could be improved.
The Office of the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner manages the Independent Custody Visitor Scheme and the Animal Welfare Scheme.
We currently have 27 volunteers who are involved in these valuable schemes. Each volunteer gives up their time each month to visit either detainees in the county's Custody Suites or police dog kennels, at Police Headquarters to check on the welfare of the animals.
The Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs) attend the Bridewell in Nottingham three times per week, as well as visiting the Mansfield and Newark Custody Suites once per week. Each ICV is required to complete a minimum of two visits per month.
Volunteers get their travel expenses paid, as well as any other expenses incurred during their working hours that are previously agreed. Other expenses could include an allowance for lunch or dinner if they are for example attending a meeting, conference or event for a set amount of time.
Over forthcoming months the Commissioner's Office may require further volunteers to help with mystery shopper and community consultation exercises. Any new vacancies will be advised on this website.
