Former Shirebrook Police Volunteers Become Special Constables

Two former Police Support Volunteers who worked with officers and the community in the Shirebrook area have started their training to become Special Constables.

Adrian Portianow, 20, became a Police Support Volunteer in July 2016. He is a student studying for a degree in crime and criminology and speaks English, Polish, Czech and Slovakian.

Natalia Witczak, originally from Poland, became a Police Support Volunteer in October 2015. She speaks both English and Polish fluently and was commended at a special police ceremony for helping a vulnerable domestic abuse victim.

Both Adrian and Natalia have worked with the Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team to help them bridge the gap with harder to reach communities, and help officers to communicate with people who have not spoken English as their first language.

Sergeant Mark Church, of the Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Congratulations to both Adrian and Natalia on becoming Special Constables, we hope that you continue to enjoy every day with the police service and I hope one day you may become police officers.”

“It is heart-warming to see that there are people who live locally who want to give something back to their community and it makes me proud that these people have worked with our team. I would take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Natalia and Adrian for their hard work as volunteers in Shirebrook.”

Derbyshire Police are currently recruiting for police officers and a number of Police Support Volunteer roles in Derbyshire.  For more information on a career with Derbyshire Constabulary, and details on how to apply, visit the website: www.derbyshire.police.uk/Careers further details can also be heard in our News In Focus program ‘On The Beat’
