Office of the Kent Police & Crime Commissioner: Volunteer Scheme - deadline 1 July

The Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) is looking for volunteers (Independent Custody Visitors – ICVs) across Kent to visit Custody suites to check on the welfare and conditions of those held in police cells and report back to the PCC. This can be as often as once a month. In addition, ICVs attend training sessions, between two and four panel meetings a year, and an Annual General Meeting. The time commitment required is around three to five hours a month and all ICVs are asked to carry out at least one night-time visit a year (between 10pm and 6am).

The PCC’s recruitment drive closes on 1st July.

More information about ICVs, and the application form, can be found here:
