Some exciting news- next week, Wednesday 15th March at 7pm, I am going to be hosting our first ever online Specials recruitment event-broadcast live from Cambourne.
The Special Constabulary is the volunteer police force that supports the work of Cambridgeshire Constabulary. ‘Specials’ are warranted officers that have all the powers of their ‘regular’ colleagues and are trained to a very high level.
The live event is an information evening for anyone who has every thought about joining the special constabulary and wants to know more. Over the course of the half-hour broadcast I will be interviewing a number of different Specials covering issues like- the application process, the training, what the job is like, the amount of commitment required and so forth. We will also try to answer as many questions from the viewers as possible.
To take part in the event simply follow the main official Cambridgeshire Constabulary twitter account @cambscops ( https://twitter.com/CambsCops?lang=en ). At 7pm a link will be posted to the live broadcast- click the link and hey-presto you will join the broadcast.
Whilst this event is themed around Cambridgeshire Constabulary, a lot of the information will be of interest to anyone thinking about becoming a Special, anywhere in the country so please feel free to share this email with family or friends in other areas.
If you’d like to submit a question in advance you can do it in two ways- post it to our twitter using the hashtag #SpecialsLive or email me back and we’ll try to answer it during the broadcast.
Hope you are able to join us next week,
Chief Inspector James Sutherland
Area Commander- South Cambs
