People who want to serve their community in south Lincolnshire are being invited to consider joining the county’s Special Constabulary after this National Special Constabulary Weekend.

The aim of the weekend, from Friday to Sunday, is to showcase and celebrate the contribution of Special Constabulary officers across England and Wales.

The dedicated contribution of time and talents by the wonderful people who make up the Special Constabulary in Lincolnshire is amazing

As volunteers, Special Constables carry out their duties and training alongside other work and family commitments.

But they have full policing powers in order to help with the prevention and detection of crime, maintaining law and order and protecting life and property.

Chief Officer Steve Woodcock MBE, head of the Special Constabulary in Lincolnshire, said: “The dedicated contribution of time and talents by the wonderful people who make up the Special Constabulary in Lincolnshire is amazing.

“In the last financial year, over 66,000 hours of duty and training were undertaken which supported the communities of Lincolnshire tremendously and enhanced the policing service delivered.”
