Lincolnshire Police are appealing for new special constables

Comments (0)

VOLUNTEERS who have an interest in the community, and in police work are being sought by the special constabulary.

Lincolnshire Police believes a wealth of interesting opportunities await those people who are appointed as special constables in community policing.

Lincolnshire Police's special 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."

Special constables are part of the local policing team, and voluntarily work alongside officers of the regular force, and with other experienced Specials. Training on appointment involves an induction course at the force headquarters, followed by an ongoing training programme delivered on a local basis.

To be eligible for appointment as a special constable, persons must be aged over 18 years.

For more information please log on to www.lincs.police.uk/Join-Us/Special-Constables to find out more about our eligibility criteria.

An opportunity exists for interested persons to find out more at a Recruiting Drop-in event to be held at The Guildhall, St.Peters Hill, Grantham on Saturday, October 20 from 10am to 2pm.

    Think David Cameron needs a letter to say that the Police now need people to volunteer their time (Free of charge) because the police budget cannot afford to put more officers on the Beat..
