As National Volunteers' week continues, we're celebrating the tireless work of our volunteers.
We spoke to one of our Specials about why they love being part of the Special Constabulary in Cleveland Police.
Specials Assistant Chief Officer, Rob Lynas, has been a Special for 15 years this October following in the footsteps of his dad and grandad.
Opening up on why he wanted to join Cleveland Police, Rob said: “My dad was a Special and my grandad volunteered for the Police, and I wanted to do something positive for my community."
He said the best thing about his role is being able to give something back to the community and to help people in need.
On the challenges within his role, Rob said: “Managing family life, work life and volunteering is often a challenge, but after many years I have got a good balance now.”
Summing up his role in three words, Rob said being a Special was: “Exciting, rewarding, demanding.”
