Fifteen new special constables have joined Derbyshire Constabulary and swore an oath at force headquarters last night (Tuesday, September 26).
They've been in training since the end of May and will soon be on duty across the county including Derby, Ilkeston, Chesterfield, Staveley and Chapel-en-le-Frith.
Assistant Chief Constable Chris Haward, who welcomed the new officers to the force, said: “Our Special Constabulary continues to grow, and as always we are pleased to welcome our new volunteers to the team. I was really proud to be at last night’s Special Constabulary attestation ceremony, meeting the new officers, their friends and families.
"We are continuing to recruit special constables who join us with different skills and life experiences. This intake includes a teacher, an HGV driver, a student doctor and an early retiree, each wanting to give back to the community in which they live."
