People looking for an exciting and rewarding opportunity are being invited by Lancashire Constabulary to consider a career as a Special Constable.

The Force is hosting an event at Greenbank Police Station, Blackburn on Thursday, June 26, at 7pm, aimed at aspiring officers who wish to become involved.

There are currently over 400 Specials working and a recruitment drive is now underway to get more volunteers to join the ranks.

Special Constables are unpaid volunteer police officers who have the same powers as regular police officers and wear the same uniform.

They carry out local patrols, police local events and take part in crime reduction projects, working to cut crime and anti-social behaviour. If you would like to attend, please contact Nigel Walker at Nigel.walker@lancashire.pnn.police.uk.
