Lincolnshire Police hunting for volunteers to be Special Constables

LOCAL police are on the hunt for volunteers who have an interest in the community, and in police work.

The Lincolnshire Police Special Constabulary is now recruiting in the East Lindsey area.

Specials Superintendent Steve Woodcock, Head of the Special Constabulary 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. Visit the bsite, to find out more about eligibility criteria.

An opportunity exists for interested persons to find out more at a Recruiting Seminar to be held at Louth Police Station on Saturday, May 19, beginning at 10am.
