Volunteers commended by police
8:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
SELFLESS volunteers have been commended by Avon and Somerset Police at a special conference.
The 77 independent custody visitors, who give up their time to help run the scheme in several police stations in Somerset, were thanked by the force.
Speaking at the event, Avon and Somerset’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “We have some fantastic volunteers in Avon and Somerset who selflessly give up their time to help the police and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all the work they do, it is extremely appreciated.
“Custody Visiting is a volunteer opportunity which is as important as it is unglamorous and unknown by the vast majority of the public.”
