Humberside Police wants more horse riders to become Rural Community Safety Volunteers across the force area to provide a highly visible deterrent to criminals and bring the latest crime prevention and safety advice to those living and working in the area.
The scheme, open to competent riders over the age of 18, who own a horse of at least four years old and 15hh, aims to build up a team of volunteers who can go on at least two, one hour horseback patrols a week. Volunteers passing the vetting procedure will be given full training. They will not be deployed to policing incidents or have powers of arrest. Call 01482 220723 for further information.
