CHESHIRE Police are looking for volunteers to become the first Community Safety Responders in the county.

The new volunteer role will assist crime reduction advisors in delivering practical safety measures and advice to victims of crime in their local community, as well as working with their community to implement crime prevention measures.

Cheshire Constabulary is currently recruiting volunteers for the scheme, initially from the west of the county, but eventually from the whole of Cheshire.

The role will involve volunteers visiting victims of crime and antisocial behaviour to undertake an assessment and establish if any services are required from the constabulary or other agencies.

The volunteers will receive training and work with established community groups such as Home Watch.
