South Wales Police Youth Volunteers (PYVs) are an important part of the police family.
The PYV scheme is for those aged between 14 and 18, and is part of a police uniformed youth group recognised throughout the UK. It is not about recruiting police officers, but aims to develop a sense of good citizenship in young people.
The scheme has five objectives:
It’s an excellent opportunity and will look great on your CV when you start applying for work or to colleges and universities.
We are now accepting expressions of interest to join a local hub. This can be done online here.
We accept expressions of interest from those who are between 13 and a half and 17 years old, and reside within the force area. Your expression of interest will be registered on the central waiting list and you will be offered a place in a local PYV Hub as soon as you are eligible and space becomes available. Please note that the scheme is very popular and as a result, in some areas there is a longer wait to join.
We currently have PYV Hubs based in Cardiff, Bridgend, Barry, Penarth, Swansea, Port Talbot, Neath, Cynon Valley and Merthyr.
