Lothian and Borders Police Board is looking for volunteers.
The board is looking for volunteers from the Scottish Borders to join its custody visiting and lay diversity adviser schemes.
What is the custody visiting scheme?
Custody visitors are independent members of the community who visit Police Stations unannounced to check on the welfare of people who are in custody.
What is the lay diversity advisers scheme
Lay diversity advisers are independent members of the community who monitor and influence police strategy and operations in relation to diversity and equality. They scrutinise police relations and the police investigation of hate crime including critical incidents.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit the Lothian and Borders Police Board website for more information.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 15 February 2012.
