The AFP's Volunteers in Policing (VIP) Program operates within the ACT, in support of the activities of ACT Policing. The team is a diverse group from a variety of backgrounds and brings a broad range of skills and experience to ACT Policing.
As a Police Volunteer, you have the opportunity to help make a difference to your community, whether it's with events, communications, administration or program support. Being a Police Volunteer is one of the most satisfying and rewarding volunteer programs the country has to offer.
We have opportunities for volunteers with a whole range of different skills, knowledge and experience in a huge range of roles and locations.
Some roles include:
- front office support at police stations
- assistance at community events (i.e. Canberra Show and Multicultural Festival)
- ceremonial support (award investitures)
- catering at training exercises and workshops
- role playing for police recruit training
The Program operates between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday with very limited after-hours or weekend work. No remuneration is paid to Police Volunteers.
The Program is not an entry pathway to a career in the AFP.
