"The birth of my second child drove me to apply and I became a special constable in 2009. I wanted to give something back to the community I lived in, making it a safer place for my children to grow up in. Training was varied and required a significant commitment, however in return I received the highest level of training across many areas of policing. Throughout my training I had the full support of regular officers along with the specials Sergeant and Inspector. Since 2009, I have worked part time as a CCTV operator based within a police station. It allows me to juggle my childcare responsibilities, whilst my wife works full time, and my role as a special.
"I re-joined Wiltshire Police as a special constable in 2013, having started with Devon and Cornwall Police in 1995 before transferring to Wiltshire in 1998 for a further four years. Over the years I have seen and dealt with some serious and sometimes difficult situations, which the general public wouldn't normally see. At 22 years of age I was arresting drink drivers and attending road traffic collisions, some of which involved fatalities. I had to learn quickly and mature fast.
