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 hand write 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

The supervisor in the department or area where the role is based will arrange a meeting with you. This is an informal meeting to determine if you have the right skills and abilities and for you to establish if the role meets your requirements.

Stage 3: 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.

Fit for role

We have a duty of care to our volunteers and all volunteers are required to have a Health Information Form signed by their GP to confirm that you are fit to perform the specific role.


References will be sought from two referees, preferably one character reference and one employment/educational reference.
