Chief thanks Hampshire's special constables

First published in New Forest News

SPECIAL Constables were out in force to mark national Specials Weekend.

More than 560 people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight volunteer to keep their communities safe as Specials.

Officers from Hampshire showcased what they do in reducing road casualties and anti-social vehicle use, and tackling rural crime.

Chief Superintendent Dave Powell, force lead for the Special Constabulary, said: “We have 566 Special Constables across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, who provide a vital support service for their local policing teams and more importantly, their communities.

“We have a huge range of expertise as part of our Special Constabulary, from teachers, to stay at home mothers and retired businessmen and women, who all have something different to bring to policing.

“I would like to thank them for giving up their free time.”
