Police support volunteer recruitment process

Stage 1: Application

Before you apply, check that you are eligible.  Eligibility is the same as for our police staff roles.

Download the application forms below.  You must complete and submit both forms.

Send your application as a Microsoft Word document to volunteers@lincs.pnn.police.uk.  Or you can handwrite your application and send to the address below.

We will review your application and forward it to the supervisor of the role.

Stage 2: Informal meeting

We will invite you to attend an informal meeting with the supervisor of the role.

Stage 3: Medical

We will ask you to complete a medical history questionnaire and attend a medical appointment.  This is with our Force Physician in Lincoln.  It will include a medical examination, eyesight and hearing test.

Stage 4: Pre-employment checks

We will conduct comprehensive vetting checks.


We will conduct police checks on you, your immediate family and any adult living at the same address as you.  We will also request National Security Vetting and carry out financial checks.

DNA and fingerprints (biometric vetting)

We will take samples of your DNA and fingerprints and check against outstanding crimes.  We do this after we make a provisional offer, but before a final offer to appoint.

When all the necessary checks are complete, we will write to you to confirm your acceptance.
