POLICE and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer has honoured the dedication and service given by Special Constables.
Long serving Specials from across Cheshire were honoured at an awards ceremony held at Cheshire Police headquarters on September 18.
Mr Dwyer said: “It is an honour to recognise the commitment and dedication of our Special Constabulary.
“These are people who generously give up their spare time to work alongside regular officers and play an active and vital role in tackling crime and maintaining public safety.”
Long service awards for five years service were presented to Lee Bellfield, Christopher Johnson, David Jones, Adam Langley, Steven Perry and Gary Rawlinson.
Timothy Williams was also presented with an award for nine years service.
The evening’s highest accolades went to Mark Jones, Steve Jones and Richard Streets, who each received an award for 19 years service.
“We are working towards the goal of doubling the Special Constabulary by the end of my term in office and I have been delighted about how supportive the community has been.”
The ceremony also saw the Passing out Parade of twenty-two Special Constables, who received certificates to mark the completion of their training. They will continue to work on operational duties within the community.
