Suffolk police have organised a drop-in event for people to find out more about volunteering as a special constable in Bury St Edmunds.

On Saturday, November 11, the Athenaeum in Angel Hill will have officers available to speak to and find out more between 10am and 4pm on what special constable roles entail and how to go about joining.

Among the tasks will be helping police with incidents and events and high-visibility patrols.

Those aged 18 upwards of good health and character can apply, where they will be given full training.

Karen Harris, specials and volunteers manager said: “Specials are an integral part of our organisation, they are extremely valued and valuable, all of our special officers are highly trained and play an essential role in preventing, reducing and tackling crime and keeping Suffolk safe.
