The Rural Pro-active Team at Nottinghamshire Police Special Constables have volunteered hundreds of hours of their time in policing rural communities, rivers and streams by working closely with partner agencies such as the Angling Trust, Environment Agency and local authorities. Thank you!
WE'RE PROUD TO BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED US MOST:
2016 was another busy year for the Force, facing new challenges and rising to new crime trends - and our Special Constabulary was there day-after-day, helping to ensure that the Force can deliver an effective and timely response to those who require our help most.
Special Constables in Nottinghamshire Police volunteered more than 54,000 hours throughout 2016.
Collectively, the volunteer officers responded to thousands of incidents, made dozens of arrests and helped provide a visible presence in our local communities.
Specials also conducted a number of operations and effected warrants right across our county, to help ensure the safety of the public.
More than 60 illegal vehicles were also removed from our county's roads, as a result of Special Constables taking positive action against those who use our roads illegally, or fail to ensure that their vehicle is properly taxed and insured.
Our Rural Special Pro-active team also volunteered hundreds of hours of their time in policing our rural communities, rivers and streams, by working closely with partner agencies, such as the Angling Trust, Environment Agency and local authorities.
EMOpSS (The East Midlands Operational Support Service) also welcomed seven Special Constable recruits to the multi-force collaboration project - paving way for volunteers to get more involved with Roads and Specialist policing teams.
We're PROUD to volunteer our time to help ensure that all of our communities are safe and to enable the Force to be #ThereWhenYouNeedUs.
