Community Special Constable Bryant officially took up his position as our Community Police Officer on 1st November 2022.
Constable Bryant has met many people on his beat, including local businesses and community groups. He is in discussion with a number of parties in regard to community based initiatives, aimed at making our Island a better and safer place. Understandably he hasn't been able to meet and speak to everyone, but if you would like SC Bryant to drop by to discuss a concern or simply to say hello, please provide your details to the Council Office and we will be more than happy to pass them on.

Community Special Constables are volunteer police officers, holding the same office and the same powers as regular officers; they wear the same uniform and carry the same equipment and are deployed to the same incidents. Being volunteers, CSCs are not paid but can claim mileage and duty allowances.
