COMMUNITY SPECIAL CONSTABLES FOR MERSEA (UPDATED JULY 2020)

West Mersea Town Council has reached agreement with Essex Police to sponsor the provision of up to 4 Community Special Constables (CSC) for West Mersea. CSCs are volunteer police officers, holding the same office and the same powers as regular officers; they wear the same uniform and carry the same equipment and are deployed to the same incidents. Being volunteers, CSCs are not paid but can claim mileage and duty allowances. Of the three recruits that were going through pre and post foundation training, unfortunately two have withdrawn. During May another applicant has joined the recruitment process - all being well this will result in two potential Community Specials for Mersea.
