New recruits join Derbyshire police specials

A TREE surgeon, a postman and a paramedic are among 21 new special constables who have joined Derbyshire police. Almost 100 friends and family gathered at police headquarters in Ripley, on Monday, June 13, to see the new recruits sworn in at a special ceremony. The group had completed an intensive two-week course in May, studying various aspects of policing including crime scenes, road traffic collisions, statement taking and first aid.
