Well, special constables are unpaid volunteers. Same as magistrates judges, I only just learnt that one, and they don't even need any qualifications in Law!!!!

When do you leave school?

Magistrates (also known as Justices of the Peace (JP)) are volunteers drawn from the community and funny enough sit in Magistrates Courts

Judges are qualified Barristers (also known as QC's - Queens Counsel) and in sit in Crown Court, High Court/Court of Appeal.

As to your (shock horror) both JP's and Specials get training.

I would give you a complete run down on the UK legal system (both Criminal (Beyond Reasonable Doubt) and Civil (Probability) but don't have the time at the mo.

Good luck with your learning, you obviously have a long way to go.

WYP Specials are very well trained (They even have their own Police Support Unit (PSU) and are trained to PSU Level 1 (highest level of riot training).

The thin and broken blue line is so thin and broken that even the Specials don't have time for this work. This is merely the WYP asking for volunteers to be trained to collect information, nothing more. They won't be making arrests.

not all Judges are QCs though - and some are mere Recorders......also in the Mags' Courts as well as Lay Magistrates there are Stipendiary Magistrates and District Judges............. :) I could go on but like you don't have the time right now

Would the Police volunteer their services for free ?
No, i didn't think so!
No, you only have to see those that tip up to join the TA, expect only to do two weeks in their first year and get top year 3 bounty then bugger off, happily life isn't like that.

Just read this the Evening post
Which one? There are 23 Evening Posts in the UK (not including the Stornoway Evening Post because that would be 24).

You got any more snippets you read in the Argus Bugle?

I can barely contain my excitement.

Have argued for a.long time that the police should get rid of PCSO and use the money for a territorial reserve special constabulary
