Essex Police welcomes 15 new Special Constables

Fifteen Special Constables proudly attested earlier this month during a special ceremony at our HQ in Chelmsford.

After completing a training course to equip them with the same policing powers as regular colleagues, the Specials took their oaths in front of Justice of the Peace Dawn Roche, Assistant Chief Constable Andy Prophet and Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Roger Hirst and were presented with a Certificate of Attestation and a warrant card.

Each Special Constable was introduced by Superintendent Simon Anslow, Head of the Special Constabulary, in front of their proud loved ones, senior officers and other Special Constables in their area that attended to welcome them into the force.

Mr Anslow introduced each Special and announced which area they would be posted to before inviting them to take to the stage and swear in.
