Sign up as a special constable in Clitheroe
12:46pm Thursday 21st February 2013 in News
PEOPLE looking to gain new skills while making good use of their spare time are being invited to become a special constable.
There are currently over 400 specials working with Lancashire Constabulary and a recruitment drive is now under way in the East Lancashire area to get more volunteers to join the ranks.
The latest recruitment evening will be held at Clitheroe Police Office, in Station Road, this evening at 7pm.
Special constables are unpaid volunteer police officers who have the same powers as regular police officers and wear the same uniform.
No formal qualifications are needed but applicants must be over 18.
Specials coordinator Nigel Walker who is coordinating the recruitment event, said: “Being a special gives a fantastic sense of being part of a professional team and the opportunities to learn important skills that can also be used in everyday life.”
Places are limited, so people are asked to register an interest with Nigel Walker on 01254 353225 or via Nigel.email@example.com.
