Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa has spoken of his gratitude to the army of policing volunteers who help protect community life and maintain public safety in honour of National Volunteers’ Week.

The Commissioner praised the dedication and passion of Special Constables, Police Support Volunteers, Police Cadets and Independent Custody Visitors (ICV) who make a real and visible difference to the police service and improve life for current and future generations.

He was speaking in celebration of national Volunteers’ Week which is held between June 1 and 7 every year to recognise the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. 

Mr Dhindsa said: “I cannot overstate the value volunteers bring to policing in Derbyshire. As we’ve seen with our ICVs, volunteers are helping us to set the pace nationally in terms of policing standards and ensuring vulnerable people receive the dignity and rights they are entitled to.

“Volunteers also play a vital role in keeping the public safe and preventing crime. Amidst the current pandemic, our police volunteers have gone above and beyond to protect our communities from the threat of this dreadful disease at no thought for their own safety.

“I appreciate everything they do and would like to take this opportunity to give my thanks to their ongoing support and efforts.

“I wholeheartedly support National Volunteers Week and the work of all the volunteers in our communities whose many deeds and kindness remain unpublicised. The health crisis has shown us all the power of coming together to help one another and I hope this national celebration will inspire others to follow their example.”
