Could you be a special constable?
FROM today, Devon and Cornwall Police are looking to recruit a number of special constables across the region.
Cornish applicants are being encouraged to apply for the voluntary role, which would see candidates work alongside their local police officers.
Special constables have the same powers as the police and make up an essential part of the force.
Chief Officer of the Special Constabulary, Mark Kastner, said: “Becoming a special constable is a big commitment, but is ultimately very rewarding. People join because they feel they have something to give and have a real desire to make their community a safer place.
