Specials hold event in Stevenage

Stevenage Special Constables held an event in the town centre last weekend to offer advice and information on a range of subjects.

The officers were on hand to discuss quality of life issues, including anti-social behaviour and how to become a Special Constable, at a special event as part of National Specials Weekend - which ran from Friday February 11 to Sunday February 13, 2011.

Specials Sergeant Andy Hall said: “It was a really successful event. We were there with the Community Safety Van and had lots of visitors who wanted advice and information on lots of subjects ranging from how to join a Neighbourhood Watch to how to join the Specials. We also had a visit from the Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Michael Downing.”

Stevenage has 45 Special Constables supporting the regular service focusing on anti-social behaviour, community based policing, working with the Stevenage Police Cadets and supporting their regular colleagues as part of the extended police family.

The event was held as part of National Specials Weekend – a national event to raise the profile of the Special Constabulary and highlight the work the volunteer police officers do in the community.
