Can you help the police?
Renfrewshire police have invited community-minded residents who want to play their part to apply to become volunteers on the beat.
Spe c i a l c o n s t a b l e s are being recruited to support police in Paisley and surrounding towns in villages, from policing major events to helping to tackle violence on the streets.
A Po l i c e S c o t l a n d spokesman told the Paisley Daily Express: “Have you ever thought about becoming a special constable and volunteering in your local community?
“Do you have what it takes to provide an initial response to incidents – arrest, detain or report individuals, carry out searches of vehicles, premises and open areas and search individuals and their personal property?”
