Citizens in Policing

Citizens in Policing is the term used to describe the thousands of people across the UK who give up their own time to support the police.

They range from special constables to puppy walkers, volunteer police cadets to Neighbourhood Watch volunteers. They help to increase the capacity of the police service and enhance the service provided by North Yorkshire Police.

North Yorkshire Police has a strong history of volunteering. It plays a vital role in policing, whether it’s directly for the police or for one of the many organisations who work in partnership with us. People come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences to give their own time freely, and for this we are extremely grateful.

Our Citizens in Policing team manage all aspects of volunteering at North Yorkshire Police.
