Get on the beat with the Specials

Have your say

Volunteers keen to do unpaid police work can find out about life as a special constable at a recruitment evening in Spalding next week.

Special constables work alongside officers in the regular force and often with other experienced ‘Specials.’

Specials chief officer Steve Woodcock said: “As a special constable, there is a chance to meet people from a variety of backgrounds in an even wider range of situations.

“Officers learn much about human nature, teamwork and increase their ability to cope with the unexpected.”
