Chief Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner give a special welcome to new officers
The latest recruits to join North Yorkshire Police’s Special Constabulary were attested at Northallerton Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 3 July 2013.
The 11 officers are the first officers to join the ranks since Chief Constable Dave Jones, who was at the ceremony, took up the position on Monday 3 June 2013.
The specials who are based across North Yorkshire and the City of York are:
The new officers will now been assigned a tutor constable and will work alongside regular colleagues. Once they have completed their training, which can take up to two years, they will be able to undertake independent patrols.
The invited guests included Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire Julia Mullligan, The High Sheriff of North Yorkshire, Reverend Rachel Benson, Acting Assistant Chief Constable Ken McIntosh, Mrs Anna Ramsden, Chair of the Bench, Superintendent Andy McMillan, Safer Neighbourhood Commander for Hambleton and Richmondshire, as well guests of the specials being attested.
Chief Constable Dave Jones said: “I am very proud to welcome these latest recruits to North Yorkshire Police. I know that they will all prove to be great assets to the service.
“The constables have now completed an initial period of intensive training and can look forward to working alongside regular colleagues. I see their role expanding in the future with even more opportunities for further development.
“Specials perform a vital role within the service, carrying out exactly the same roles as regulars. A group of specials has recently completed a rigorous training course allowing them to use forced entry during police raids.
“I know that they will find the role fulfilling and enjoyable. They may even equal the length of service of North Yorkshire’s longest serving special, who has recently completed 41 years with the service.”
Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said “Special Constables contribute a huge amount to North Yorkshire Police, and play a crucial part in keeping our county the safest in England.”
“I have committed to doubling the number of Specials, and today gives me an opportunity to thank Specials, and all the volunteers who contribute to North Yorkshire Police, for putting so much time and energy into keeping our communities safe. It is an exciting time to join the Special Constabulary here in North Yorkshire and I am looking forward to working with the service to enhance and grow their role in the coming months.”
North Yorkshire Police will launch a new recruitment campaign for the Special Constabulary on Monday 29 July 2013, when full details will be published on www.northyorkshire,police.uk/specials, where you can also find out more about the role.
