Youth Volunteers

Police Scotland VolunteersIn September 2016 a Police Scotland Youth Volunteer group will be launched in East Lothian. It will be based in Musselburgh on a Tuesday evening. The group will learn new skills relating to volunteering and policing, which will in turn assist and prepare them for volunteering at local and national events.


The aims of the PSYV are to encourage the spirit of adventure and good citizenship, inspire young people to participate positively in their communities, promote a practical understanding of policing amongst young people, and support local policing priorities through volunteering and giving young people a chance to be heard.


If this sounds of interest to you, and you are aged 13-15 (or just turned 16), further information can be found on the Police Scotland website at (twitter & FB links also within this page).


Application forms can be requested from PC Smith @ Musselburgh Police Station ( with a return date of Friday 9th September.
