The law prohibits the sale of tobacco, alcohol, fireworks, solvents and knives to individuals under the age of 18.

We are looking for volunteers aged between 13 and 16½ to assist us in our test purchasing operations.

While working for our team, you will assist the department by attempting to buy age restricted products, and conducting any further checks on local businesses. Test purchasing is carried out during school holidays, evenings and weekends.

If you are interested in a career in law enforcement this would help to give you some experience in a similar setting.

Permission from your parent/guardian will be required.

How to volunteer

If you would like more information or to express your interest, please call 01384 818872.
