David Keane, the Police & Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, is offering residents an exciting volunteering opportunity to join the Front Desk Auditor Scheme in Cheshire. Front Desk Auditors undertake an audit of police estate to check that front desks located with police stations are accessible and deliver the required level of information and service. Visits will also check on the conditions of police estate and the service delivery standards of Front Desk Staff.

David said “One of my priorities as your Police & Crime Commissioner is to have a ‘police service connected with our communities’. Front Desk Auditors will act as ‘critical friends’ providing me with independent and invaluable feedback on the extent to which police estate is accessible and the manner in which the Constabulary interacts with the public.

Margaret Lonsdale, Front Desk Auditor, said: “Before taking up the role of a Front Desk Auditor, I volunteered my time as an Independent Custody Visitor. Both roles provide reassurance to the commissioner that officers are doing their jobs properly. They also provide a good link between local officers and the community. Before becoming a volunteer with the commissioner, I was a head teacher in Blacon. Carrying out visits to Blacon custody suite helped me understand the issues of the wider community.”
