Recognition of service after 30 years was ‘well worth the wait’

‘Treasured’ memories for leading inspector with the Specials

An officer has finally received recognition of her lead role in the Special Constabulary – 30 years after leaving the service.

Former SC Inspector Christine Clark was totally unaware she was entitled to a certificate acknowledging her time with Lincolnshire Police.

A chance conversation with a person connected to the constabulary led to direct contact with current chief constable Bill Skelly.

The result was a presentation to Mrs Clark who served as a sub-divisional inspector in charge of 47 officers during the 1980s.

She said she would “always treasure” her time with the force – just short of nine years – which counted as long service.

Community Police Inspector Gary Stewart, who presented Mrs Clark with her certificate, said: “It was a pleasure to present Christine with her certificate of service.

“I would always encourage members of the community to join the Special Constabulary, whose support provides such a valuable service.”
