AN EVENT is being held this weekend to give more information on becoming a special constable with the police.
People interested in the role of the Special Constabulary are being invited to attend North Tyneside Area Command Headquarters, Middle Engine Lane, Wallsend, on Sunday, July 8, at 2pm.
The Special Constabulary are trained volunteers who work with their local 24/7 officers and neighbourhood policing teams.
Following initial training, special constables have a full range of police powers, are issued with the same protective equipment and wear an identical uniform.
For more information on the event email firstname.lastname@example.org
