Assistant Chief Constable Keith Smy highlighted what Lincolnshire Specials mean to the Force
He said: “The role of a police officer is a challenging but rewarding one.
“Our Specials take on this challenge as volunteers and make a real difference within the communities in which they work.
“I believe that becoming a Special in Lincolnshire demonstrates a real civic responsibility and the people of Lincolnshire should be proud of them – I know I am.”
