Hertfordshire police appeal for volunteers to staff information point at Bishop's Stortford police station

Hertfordshire Constabulary is appealing for volunteers to help its police officers in Bishop's Stortford.

The new recruits are needed to staff an information point at the town's police station in Basbow Lane, which has no front counter service. Instead, visitors must use a telephone to contact the force's control room.

The volunteers' role would be to respond to general inquiries, collect details from members of the public for the local policing team and pass them on appropriately and accurately. Keeping a written log of all phone calls and enquiries would be part of the duties.
