PFCC celebrates National Volunteers Week

Posted Friday 7th June

This week, which is National Volunteers Week, the PFCC has celebrated all our wonderful volunteers who give up so much of their time to supporting PFCC work in communities across Essex.

Volunteers’ Week is an opportunity to celebrate all of these people who offer their time free of charge to strengthen the community safety services provided around the county.

The Essex Restorative and Mediation Service volunteers work with those involved in crime or conflict to support them in finding mutually agreed outcomes. The scheme allows victims of crime and anti-social behaviour to get answers, and those responsible for the harm an opportunity to make amends. If you are interested in volunteering for the Essex Restorative and Mediation Service.

Volunteers also work with the PFCC to carry out the statutory Independent Custody Visiting scheme. The scheme sees volunteers visit police station custody suites to check on the treatment of detainees, the conditions they are held in and that their rights and entitlements are being met.

Volunteers also work with the PFCC in the Essex Animal Welfare Scheme. Volunteers take on roles observing and reporting the conditions under which police dogs are trained, transported, deployed and cared for.

If you would like more information or to volunteer for any of these roles, please email [email protected]
