Are you able to support children and vulnerable adults who have been arrested by the police? Vulnerable people detained in custody often need support and guidance and a caring hand to ensure they are treated properly and fairly. Usually parents will attend, but there are times when they can't. This is when Kent Police call on our volunteers to fulfil this crucial role. The Police cannot proceed without an appropriate adult.
