Top cop tells Ribble Valley council leader special constables are 'crucial'
10:22am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
RIBBLE Valley council, leader Stuart Hirst won a promise from Lancashire Chief Constable Steve Finnigan that recruitment of special constables will be stepped up.
He raised the issue at this week’s meeting of the Police and Crime Panel at Blackburn town hall.
Mr Finnigan outlined the cuts facing the force and Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw said greater use of volunteers was one way to cope with cuts in staff.
Coun Hirst said: “We have found special constables a major resource in the Ribble Valley. What proposals are there to recruit more?”
Mr Finnigan said: “We see specials as a crucial part of the future.”
