    • Hi all, i wonder if i could engage and get more thoughts on the DE Inspector Programme. A little about me first, i am a manager with the health care sector and have been for over 10 years now, i currently have a staff team of around 60 - 70 people. I am also a serving Special Constable and absolutely love the job and look forward to the weekends when i can go out on shift and assist my regular colleagues.

      I wanted to gage peoples thoughts on the process and if by being a serving Special if would be looked upon any differently to say someone who had no operational experience at all. I am wanting to apply to West Mercia Police as if is the closest force to where i currently serve.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated good or bad, and if anyone has gone through the process would be great to hear from you.

       

      Many Thanks in advance. 

      James

    • ASCO is committed to representing the best interests of the membership, but also operating in a way that benefits the membership too. So with that in mind, this is your opportunity to give some feedback on what you think. Is there something you'd like ASCO to start doing? Is there something you'd like done differently? If you're a special and not a member, what would convince you to part with the princely sum of £10 for 12 months worth of membership?

    • Police cuts could lead to 'free-for-all', campaigners warn.


      Falling numbers: Direct correlation between cuts and crime, says report

      Deep cuts in policing are being directly linked to a halving of offenders brought to justice since 2010 as anti-austerity campaigners warn of a potential crime “free-for-all”.

      Victims are far less likely to see the perpetrator charged or sentenced, according to a report by Accountable that shows the decline in the number of offences reported.

      The new study reveals before the cuts one in five robberies resulted in charges or court summons.

      By 2018, only two out of 25 robbery suspects were either summoned to court or charged.

      Robberies have increased by more than 30 per cent in 18 areas. Residents in Cumbria have seen robberies more than double while in Kent that hike is 90 per cent since government austerity measures began.

      Kent has also been particularly affected by violence against the person, rates of which have more than tripled.

      Across England and Wales, violent crime is also less likely to be punished.

      Nearly one third of all cases of violence against the person resulted in a court summons or charge in 2010, but last year only one in ten violent criminals were brought to justice.

      Accountable campaign director Emily Darlington said: “This year could see a free-for-all for criminals thanks to cuts to police forces across the country.

      “Criminals now know that their chances of getting caught have been drastically reduced.

      “Cuts to police have been far too deep and need to be reversed or we risk fuelling further crime waves by simply not having the police we need to catch criminals and fight crime.

      “The government’s duty is to protect its citizens from crime. They are failing to catch and prosecute criminals because there are not enough police on our streets.”

      The report shows that cuts to police funding have resulted in a sharp decline in numbers of...

    • About us

      ASCO was first established in 2005 as ASCCO (the Association of Special Constabulary Chief Officers) and has been acting as the ‘voice of Special Constables’ in development of national policing strategy, policy and legislation since that time.

      This year we are proud to become the first national charity to represent and celebrate the role of Special Constables across the UK – a recognition of the public benefit provided by the skills, effort and thousands of hours that Special Constables contribute to policing each year.

      We are recognised as the professional body for Special Constables by the Home Office, College of Policing, National Police Chiefs Council, Association of Police and Crime Commissioners and Independent Office of Police Conduct. We also work closely with the Police Federation of England & Wales and the Police Superintendents’ Association to improve the experience, support and recognition of Special Constables in policing.
