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.
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.
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.
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.
