Visitors to this year’s Great Yorkshire Show are invited to see North Yorkshire Police, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Commissioner’s office on stand 330 near the Gold Gate.
The show is one of the biggest agricultural events in the country and provides an opportunity for the force’s dedicated Rural Task Force to engage with members of the rural communities.
Visitors will have the chance to see the police tractor, which is kindly loaned by Ripon Farm Services. The tractor will be used to highlight the support that the police can provide to farmers with issues such as livestock worrying or the theft of GPS systems from tractors.
A roads policing vehicle will also be on the stand and there will be police uniform for photograph opportunities.
If you’ve ever thought about a career in policing or volunteering with the police, North Yorkshire Police’s dedicated recruitment team will be on the stand to provide information on job and development opportunities.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service will also be on the stand along with representatives from the Commissioner’s office.
Inspector Mark Earnshaw from North Yorkshire Police’s Rural Task Force commented:
“PCSOs and Police officers from the rural task force will be on the stand to answer any questions about rural crime or policing in general.
“I would urge anyone who has considered joining the police as a volunteer, staff member, Special Constable, or Police Officer to come and see us. This year we have colleagues from our recruitment team with us to discuss current and future opportunities within the police.”
