An Ely teenager who is studying a degree in criminology has joined Cambridgeshire Constabulary as a volunteer.

Becky Halls, 19, said she applied to become a special constable because she wanted to make a difference in her community.

Miss Halls is currently an undergraduate at Nottingham Trent University.

A police spokesman said: “Special Constables are a true sign of the partnership between the police and the public.

“They provide a vital support to a whole range of policing activities.

“Specials provide a vital link between the police and the diverse communities that we serve, helping the force to meet policing needs and increase the level of confidence and satisfaction of the public.”
