WEST Mercia Police is looking for people to become Special Constables.

Specials are uniformed police volunteers working when suits them to help police towns and villages alongside regular officers.

Full training will be given.

Guy Fewtrell, chief officer for the Special Constabulary, said: “The importance of the Special Constabulary as a valuable addition to the regular police cannot be underestimated. Specials are the ultimate active citizens, creating the crucial link between police and the communities by taking part in the way their communities are policed and helping to cut crime and the fear of crime.

“Anyone who is interested in becoming a special and who is over 18, in good health and with clear vision can apply. Specials can be any height and you don’t need qualifications, just honesty and integrity, a positive approach, with the ability to work in a team and be willing to learn new skills”.
