Crime Prevention Support Volunteers

17th February 2022

The Chief Constable of Gwent Police Pam Kelly, and Police and Crime Commissioner Jeff Cuthbert, have formally welcomed five new crime prevention support volunteers into the force.

The volunteers are working with officers and staff from Gwent Police’s problem solving hub, providing crime prevention advice and support for community events.

The group of volunteers have already been out in communities across Gwent helping with crime prevention initiatives including advising shoppers about the risks of leaving valuables on display in parked cars, and property marking motorcycles with SmartWater forensic marking.

Chief Constable Pam Kelly said: “It is wonderful to welcome our new crime prevention volunteers. Their enthusiasm and willingness to make a difference in their communities is to be commended.

“I am extremely grateful to all those who volunteer with us and thank them for their continued support.”

PCC Jeff Cuthbert said: “I am delighted to welcome these new crime prevention volunteers into Gwent Police. Every hour spent volunteering really does make a difference to our communities and I would like to wish them all the best in their new roles.”
