1. Overview

In light of the unprecedented times we are facing as a country and as a Capital, the Commissioner is asking former Met officers, staff, volunteers and the wider public to consider signing up as a police support volunteer to help the public of London.

We are currently working on the details of the exact roles required and the nature of the volunteer scheme.

To be eligible to apply

  • You must not be a serving police officer or existing member of police staff
  • You must be over 18

There's the option to join either as a Community based volunteer (CBV), where there are daily opportunities to help police communities, or as a Surge volunteer where you'd only be called on in the case of an emergency. 

We expect demand to be high so please bear with us whilst we work through the roles that we need. We will be in contact shortly, but until then thank you so much for your offer of support.
