December 2007

 

I retired from the Lancashire Constabulary as a Police Constable on 31 December 2007 having served 30 years as a constable. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the force and have never looked back!

 

On 1 January 2008 I rejoined the force as a Special Constable. I felt I still had something to give to the organisation that I have been very proud to be a member of since 1976.

 

Being a Special Constable meant that I could continue my role as a police officer but simply do not get paid. As a staff member I am able to continue my other role as a volunteer Sports Club Secretary and work on from my base at Carnforth Police Station.


In April 2014 I started at Police HQ Hutton working in the reception/post room. A tremendous job working just 20 hours a week. It enables me to network with colleagues benefitting my Sports Club secretary role.


In 2016 I changed roles and started on MAPPA Admin at Lancashire Police HQ dealing with high risk and sex offenders.


In 2018 I left the MAPPA role but continued my Sports Club Secretary role. I was then involved in the 'Club Merge and modernisation' process which culminated in creating a brand new 'paid' Club Manager post.This has been my goal for many years and I was happy to hand over my position to someone who would hopefully take the 'Club' to another level.


My work as 'Club Secretary' was done.....but I continue to run the 'Athletics and Running Section - Lancashire Constaculary AC. I hope to inject even more energy into this role now I have freed up considerable time to do this.
