Volunteer opportunities with the Pill Crime Prevention Panel

3rd April 2019

The Pill Crime Prevention Panel is recruiting new members.

A Crime Prevention Panel is a group of volunteers that work with the police to prevent crime in their communities.

This could include helping to improve home security, patrols to identify potential victims of crime, raising awareness of crime prevention techniques, community speed watch, and a range of other initiatives to help residents stay safe.

Victoria Ward, chair of the Pill Crime Prevention Panel, said: “We are residents who want to make a difference and give something back to our community.

“The crime prevention panel is a great opportunity to support vulnerable people in the community and help to create a safer environment for all residents in Pill.”

Crime Prevention Panels are funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent.

Police and Crime Commissioner Jeff Cuthbert said: “Crime Prevention Panels do a valuable job in our communities, working incredibly hard to help prevent localised crime and support vulnerable people.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to make a difference in their community.”

Members of the Crime Prevention Panel are subject to basic police vetting checks and must be aged 18 or over.
