• What is a special constable?

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “As a special, you perform police duties under the supervision of regular officers and experienced specials.

“You will have the same powers as a regular police officer, wear the same uniform and receive initial and continuous training.

“Our specials commit to at least four hours a week which is flexible to fit around your other commitments.

“Becoming a special is a great way for you to make a difference in your community. At the same time you can develop your personal skills and experiences.

“We offer an excellent training programme and mentoring scheme that will help you build knowledge and confidence.”
