Introduction to Rural Spotters event

Friday, August 6th, 2021

Thames Valley Police will be holding an “Introduction to Rural Spotters” event on TUESDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER 2021 in the evening, in Amersham. Precise venue and time to be confirmed.

Thames Valley Rural Spotter volunteer

The Rural Spotters scheme was launched in mid-2019. Rural Spotters are volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of the Police in rural areas, and liaise with their local community. They will be horse riders who look out for anything suspicious whilst out on their normal hacking routes. Training will be given, assessments made, Hi Vis vests handed out.

An active team of enthusiastic Spotters already exists, and Thames Valley Police is looking to recruit more.

Those interested in learning more can contact Helen Evans, Thames Valley Police Equine Liaison Volunteer, by emailing RuralSpottersCSB@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk.
