A (very) Special Weekend

click to go to the Cambridgeshire Constabulary Specials pageOur colleagues from the Special Constabulary, who volunteer their time, will be focusing on anti-social behaviour as part of a weekend of activity to showcase their work.

The region-wide Specials Weekend (Feb 11-12) will also see Specials involved in enforcement work around shoplifting and speeding.

Officers will concentrate on anti-social behaviour hotspots, building up intelligence and developing initiatives and links with partner organisations such as local businesses and community groups.

They are an integral part of the modern policing service, volunteering their time to help protect the community from crime and disorder by supporting the team.

Cambridgeshire currently has 203 Special officers who work about 45,000 hours every year.

Specials from Ely and Cambridge city will be carrying out anti-social behaviour patrols based on neighbourhood priorities on Friday. On Saturday, Specials from Histon will be carrying out anti-social behaviour patrols based on rural neighbourhood priorities and speed checks.

They will also issue tickets for anti-social driving, other motoring offences and under-age drinking.
