SummaryDo you enjoy driving? Do you have a Clean Driving Licence? Like working as part of a small successful team doing something really worthwhile?
The Fleetcare drivers have a wide variety of roles but the main one is being able to drive marked police vehicles (without the use of light and sirens) to and from vehicle workshops. These could be picked up and dropped off from any police station across the county.
This is a very important voluntary role in the Constabulary as this allows Police Officers and PCSOs to remain available for operational deployment and patrol duties, instead of being tied up driving vehicles to our Workshops.
There are other driving tasks at times, including delivering items within and out of county, and driving for various projects within the Constabulary.
About Gloucestershire Constabulary
We serve a population of around 600,000 people in a county which incorporates the royal households of Highgrove and Gatcombe Park, airports at Staverton and Kemble, two universities, part of the M5 motorway and a number of large employers including GCHQ. It also hosts several major events.
Day-to-day policing of the county is delivered through six areas: Cheltenham, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean.
Neighbourhood policing is very much at the heart of the Constabulary and within the six areas, we have teams covering 55 communities.
At the most local level, our neighbourhood policing teams have built strong relationships with the communities within which they work. Made up of Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), Special Constables, Police Support Volunteers, Volunteer Police Cadets and Police Staff, they tackle crime and disorder and other issues which matter most to the public.
Community policing is only part of what we do. The Constabulary showcase the work we do at our annual Open Day. Highlights include our dogs and mounted sections, roads policing team, forensics unit, specialist firearms officers, demonstrations and an opportunity to speak with Constabulary staff about paid and volunteer recruitment opportunities.
Gloucestershire Constabulary also works with other organisations (partners) such as local councils, support groups and charities, sharing expertise and making the best use of resources to help beat crime, make the county a safer place within which to live, visit and work and keep the people of Gloucestershire safe from harm.
