Lancashire people looking for a rewarding opportunity are being invited to consider a career as a Special Constable.

Lancashire Police is holding an event at Greenbank Police Station, Blackburn on Thursday at 7pm aimed at aspiring officers.

There are currently more than 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.

The event will give people an opportunity to hear presentations from existing special constables. Visit: www.lancashire.police.uk/recruitment.
