Police support volunteer recruitment help

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys, I  am new to this group and I looking for some advice on the application progress for a PSV as my local force don't advertise for volunteers they ask you to email the volunteer coordinator which I did he sent me a basic questionnaire to fill in this was August. So I had an email back from him yesterday stating this: "There is no set processing time. As I previously explained as soon as you pass vetting and an opportunity for you to volunteer is available then I will be back in touch"  

Does this mean my application is in the vetting stage? I am so confused to be grateful if you guys could help many thank Dominic

Welcome to Vetting. It's a mystical land where nothing is visible, and nobody knows what is going on.

Haha, such a nightmare because the only form I have had is a very basic questionnaire type  (Name, age qualifications, reasons to volunteer) I would have thought I would have had to fill in more forms for vetting? I have asked do  I need to provide ID and References but no reply takes ages to get replies..

It took 8 or 9 months for them to sort out my vetting. Don't stress it, they're going to prioritise Officers and Staff.

Hello.  Each force carries out different procedures for vetting of volunteers depending on the role /task you are wishing to undertake. I know in some forces there has to be a role /task vacancy for you to volunteer into.  They may be looking for this vacancy whilst your vetting is getting cleared.  WYP -we have many vacancies always welcome to join.

Yeah I can see the different procedures for vetting of volunteers depending on the role so was i suppose to state what role am i intrested in? As they didnt really say what roles are available?
