Policing students recognised by Chief Constable
23 June 2015
Four Policing students from Canterbury Christ Church University have been recognised for their voluntary work as special constables in Kent Police.
Over 3700 voluntary hours were completed by the students over the course of the academic year, whilst on duty in North and East Kent divisions.
Chief Constable of Kent Police, Alan Pughsley QPM, presented students Charlie Turner, Beatrice Chequer, Tristan Forster and Ashley Collick with awards, at a ceremony at Kent Police Training School.
Bob Underwood, Programme Director of the BSc (Hons) Police Studies/Policing degree said: “We encourage all of our students studying Policing at Canterbury Christ Church University to take up volunteering opportunities within the community, especially in the criminal justice sector. Our graduates are facing a competitive job market, so by preparing them with the necessary practical skills to back up the theory, we can help them to fulfil their dream jobs.”
