Isle of Man Special Constabulary appoints 10 new officers 23 March 2007

The Isle of Man Special Constabulary has 10 new officers who are now coming to the end of their initial training before being deployed throughout the five Neighbourhood Policing Teams on an all-Island basis.

The new recruits come from very different professional backgrounds with a number of them joining the Special Constabulary as a precursor to submitting applications to join the regular force at some point in the future.

Mike Culverhouse, Chief Constable, said:

‘I am delighted to see 10 more excellent people coming forward to join the Special Constabulary and I offer them a warm welcome. They join us at an exciting time when we are striving to meet increasingly challenging operational targets and when my regular officers depend on their support perhaps more than ever before.
‘The Manx community owes these people a huge debt in terms of protecting our rich quality of life and, on an individual basis, each of them is indeed special.’
