Dudley Trading Standards is responsible for enforcing Consumer Legislation in relation to the sale of age restricted products such as tobacco, alcohol, fireworks, solvents and knives. The law prohibits the sale of these products to individuals under a certain age as many present a real threat to their health. For example - You have to be 18 to purchase alcohol.
We are looking for volunteers aged between 13 and 16½ years of age to assist us in our test purchasing operations. As the volunteer you would assist the department in conducting checks on local businesses as you attempt to buy age restricted products (such as alcohol).
If you are interested in a career in law enforcement, then this would help in giving you some experience in a law enforcement setting.
Test purchasing is carried out during school holidays, evenings and weekends.
Permission from your parent(s) or guardian(s) will be required.
