CHESHIRE Police has re-launched its recruitment drive for special constables.

Specials are volunteers that are trained and have the same powers as a police officer.

The role is not paid, although some expenses and travel is covered.

It requires a commitment of at least 17 hours a month. 

John Dwyer, Police and Crime Commisioner for Cheshire, wants to push the recruitment of special constables.

Cheshire Police is hosting a seminar at the University of Chester Padgate campus on Thursday, January 23 where people can find out more.

To register for the seminar, or to find out more about special constables, go to cheshire.police.uk/jobs/special-constables.aspx.

More volunteers needed at Cheshire Police so they can get rid of more police officers, Through our council tax we pay the police budget so are we in line for a rebate while joe public volunteers to do the police work free of charge.
I DOUBT IT.

This guy doesn't get it does he? Just carries on with his own party political agenda regardless of the views of the people he is supposed to represent.

No wonder the election turnout was like a violent outbreak of apathy. Politicians always say "in my opinion" or "it is my belief/experience" to answer questions they want to avoid answering honestly.
