Specials engage with young people at Marsh Academy
Main article content
Volunteer officers from the Special Constabulary gave up their free time to speak with young people at a school in New Romney.
Special Sergeant Kevin Impett was among those welcomed to the Marsh Academy where students aged 16-18 were invited to ask questions on a range of policing issues.
The visit took place on Friday 5 November 2021 and covered topics including crime prevention and public safety.
Special Sergeant Impett said:
‘Building relationships with young people is very important to Kent Police and we in the Special Constabulary are keen to play our part.
‘We are very grateful to the Marsh Academy for allowing us to meet with some of their students, who were very welcoming and keen to ask questions about the work we do to support our regular colleagues and help to keep the people of Kent safe.
‘Many were also unaware of what a Special Constable is, so it was good to be able to explain that to them and make them aware of how they too can represent Kent Police in the future whilst also having full-time jobs.’
