Weekly Crime Summary 18 February 2016

New recruits being sought for Norfolk’s Special Constabulary

Volunteers are being sought to join the ranks of Norfolk’s Special Constabulary.

The county currently has some 252 Special Constables who regularly give up their spare time to assist regular police colleagues in the fight against crime. On top of this a total of 21 people are also in training to become specials.

Norfolk continues to be on the look-out for committed individuals who are keen to experience the world of policing while supporting their local community and a recruitment evening is being held on Tuesday 23 February 2016 at police headquarters in Wymondham.

The role of a Special Constable includes providing high visibility patrols and helping to police major incidents and events. They also offer vital links in the partnership between the police service and the public.

During the whole of 2015 Norfolk’s Specials clocked up some 76,700 hours on duty.

Whilst open to all, the Special Constabulary is particularly keen to boost its numbers in the Thetford and West Norfolk areas.

The recruitment event is due to take place between 7.15pm and 9pm at the Operations and Communication Centre (OCC) in Falconers Chase, Wymondham, NR18 OWW.

Anyone interested in attending the event should contact Jon Morgan- Jones on          01953 425699 extension 2371 or email morgan-jonesj@norfolk.pnn.police.uk
to confirm your place.
