Manchester Special Constabulary Patrol
One of a series of images taken over recent weeks to promote the Greater Manchester Police Special Constabulary and encourage people to consider joining the service.
The Special Constabulary works alongside the regular Force with special constables having the same powers and responsibilities as full time officers.
The role of special constable is part-time and voluntary. The history of the office can be traced back to the Middle Ages.
The Force's Special Constabulary is an integral part of the wider Policing family, providing a flexible, visible, responsive and committed resource which assists us to improve the service we deliver to the people of Greater Manchester.
To find out more about the Special Constabulary or apply to join, please visit our website.
