NORTH Wales Police are looking for volunteers to help with community work so that officers can be freed up to solve crimes.
The roles will be in the South Flintshire area, which includes Saltney, and will involve acting as liaison officers for neighbourhood policing teams, promoting vital links between organisations and updating people on the progress of investigations. It will also entail administrative support and production of a local newsletter.
Inspector of South Flintshire Police, Alun Oldfield, said: “The aim is to pilot volunteers locally. Taking part will mean that police officers will have more time to concentrate on solving and stopping crime.
“I want each of the 12 community beat managers to be able to work with at least one volunteer.”
Tracy Martin, who is already a community volunteer said:
“I feel that if I can use my administrative and customer service skills to free police officers from some of the paperwork and administrative tasks they have, this will allow them to provide more visible policing on the streets.”
The area covers Saltney, Broughton Kinnerton, Pen-y-Ffordd, Hope Leeswood, Caergwrle, Nercwys, Buckley, Mold, Mynydd Isa, Ewloe, Hawarden, Rhydymwyn, Gwernymynydd, Teuddyn and Pont-y-Bodkin.
