You'll be working within a diverse and supportive environment, bringing personal benefits and a huge sense of community involvement.

Police Support Volunteers are important to us - they enhance the service that our officers and staff provide by sharing their unique skills and experience.

We have more than 100 police volunteers working within our communities in a variety of roles from specialist search teams, to office administrators, to Community Speedwatch and many more besides.

If you want to do something positive and meaningful with your spare time, come and work with us, we’d love to hear from you.

“We’re excited to embark on this pilot scheme which is offering people the chance to volunteer for these designated roles. We have been working with: David Huse, who advised on the volunteer strategy for the London 2012 Olympics; the national Citizens in Policing team; and Unison, to help us shape the future of volunteering for Sussex Police.

“By working with those teams who have identified an area where a volunteer could get the most out of the time they give, I hope we can attract the best volunteers suited to each area.”

Laurence Taylor, Assistant Chief Constable

"I’ve volunteered for a year now and love what I do. Volunteering with Sussex Police has given me great experience and in the future I’d like to be a detective.

"I volunteer as police staff as I want to help the public and. It’s a great way to understand the way policing works and to give something back to the community by doing it for free.

"I volunteer in a busy front office. My role is to record crimes, help with lost or found items and advise members of the public on a range of topics."

Amy, 19, Police Support Volunteer
