Commissioner attends Specials swearing in

Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright showed his support for the Special Constabulary on Wednesday evening when he attended an attestation ceremony to swear in Special Constables.

Twenty-six Specials were presented with their warrant cards at the ceremony which was held at Cambridgeshire Constabulary HQ on Wednesday (May 15).

Sir Graham met the Specials, whose occupations include a bus driver, horticulturalist waiter and two students, as well as their families and friends. They were sworn in by Magistrate Benjamyn Damazer and received their warrant cards from Assistant Chief

Constable Mark Hopkins.

Sir Graham said: “I was delighted to meet so many new recruits and their families on the evening. I fully support the Specials and want to increase their numbers because they offer valuable assistance to policing in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The fact that they willingly and voluntarily give up their time is appreciated and I will do all I can to promote their contribution to policing and encourage new recruits.”
