A health care assistant, a mechanical engineer and a secretary are three of the latest recruits set to don police uniforms after joining the ranks of Norfolk’s Special Constabulary.

Ten new special constables will be out and about patrolling the county, including Diss, following an official attestation ceremony at Norfolk Constabulary’s Wymondham headquarters.

The Special Constabulary is a voluntary body to help the regular police force in meeting the policing needs of the community.

The group all individually read the Oath Of Allegiance to local Magistrate Dick Meadows, while Superintendent Roger Wiltshire was on hand to congratulate the latest set of recruits.

“Special officers play a very valuable role in supporting the work of Norfolk Constabulary and the service we provide to local people,” Supt Wiltshire said.

“It was an honour to attend such an event and meet the new recruits who we are delighted to welcome on board.”
