West Lancashire College has been presented with a certificate for its commitment to supporting Lancashire’s Special Constabulary.
Chief Supt Stuart Williams, who oversees policing in Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire, presented Louise Dawson, the principal of the college, with the certificate.
It was given to the college in recognition of it becoming a member of the employer supported policing programme – a partnership to support special constables in their duties – and its contribution to the scheme.
Chief Supt Williams said: “West Lancashire College has been very dedicated to supporting special constables in their duties, ultimately helping to improve public safety in the area. It is only right that this is recognised.
“Officers in our Special Constabulary come from a variety of backgrounds and it is great to see local businesses offering them the support they need to take on this important role.
“Joining the specials can give a person a great sense of fulfilment – it gives them a chance to get involved with the community.”
