Special constables needed in Whitby
9:01am Monday 3rd September 2012 in News
A DRIVE to recruit more special constables in North Yorkshire is being focused on Whitby following a lower response than expected in the resort.
North Yorkshire Police said that while the campaign had been successful elsewhere in the region, there was a lack of volunteers in the seaside town.
Chief Inspector Andy Colbourne, of Whitby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am very surprised we have not had more volunteers as I know the people from the area are proud of where they live and have a great community spirit.
“I would like to encourage anybody who has thought about becoming a special to take the next step and apply. Having worked alongside specials, I know just how valuable their contribution is to the force and the difference they make to local communities.”
