ACPO comment on National Specials Weekend

11 Feb 2011

ACPO support for National Specials Weekend

ACPO lead for the special constabulary, Chief Constable Peter Fahy, said:

“The special constabulary has a long history of providing assistance to police forces across the country and continues to make a tangible contribution to keeping the public safe. All of us in society have a duty to come to the aid of others but special constables regularly volunteer themselves to keep people safe.

“Working in the special constabulary provides volunteers with a unique set of experiences and I would encourage anyone who wishes to make a difference in their community to consider applying to become a special constable.”
