Fancy yourself as a bit of a crimefighting crusader? Well now there’s a chance to make your dreams a reality.
The council has secured a £26,000 grant which will be used to finance crime prevention ambassadors and a youth ambassadors project.
The crime prevention ambassadors will provide residents with the knowledge and resources to better protect themselves and their homes and engage with people out and about in the borough.
Meanwhile the community safety youth ambassadors will use drama-based workshops to develop the relationship between young people and the police as well as developing a youth forum.
Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for crime and enforcement, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for anybody who wants to get involved and make a difference to their local community.”
Successful applicants, who must be available for a minimum of four hours a month, will be trained to provide basic crime prevention advice. Travel and lunch allowances will be available.
If you would like to apply to become a crime prevention ambassador, email email@example.com or call 020 8227 5426.
