Training Special Constables
PC Westmacott has been helping train 16 new special constables that will soon be deployed around Gloucestershire.
Special constables are volunteers who give up their free time to assist regular police officers. Specials do not get paid.
Special constables hold all the same powers a full time police officer has and can arrest suspects.
We are grateful for these members of the public giving up their time to help in the community they live in.
Anyone considering becoming a special or police volunteer worker please visit Gloucestershire police website for more information. www.gloucestershire.police.uk
Many thanks, PC 2201 Nick Westmacott, Stow Neighbourhood Policing Team
