Newly Special Constable graduates join Hertfordshire Constabulary after extensive training.

Hertfordshire Constabulary welcomed seven new Special Constables during their Attestation Ceremony at Police Headquarters this month.

They join the force of 265 volunteer Special Constables, who have full police powers, uniform and protective equipment and work alongside the regular police force.

The new constables were joined on the evening by family, friends and local dignitaries, including East Herts Mayor Rosemary Bolton, Hertsmere Mayor Alan Plancey and ST Albans Mayor Janet Smith alongside other special guests.

After 11 weeks of training in learning the law around theft, public order, assaults, traffic, powers of arrest and search, the graduates passed through a final exam.

Those who graduated are:

East Herts:

• Daniel Moakes – who works as a network engineer.


• Robert Cordiner who is studying for an HND in Public Services.

St Albans

• Daniel Graham who works as a senior production manager.

• Nathan Scott who is a supermarket buyer.

Three Rivers

• Anton Deacon who works for a borough council.

• Conor Fountain who is a chef manager at a private school.


• Elaine De Oliveira who works in a steak house.

Special Constabulary Chief Officer, Mark Kendrew said: “Becoming a Special Constable brings with it the promise of being involved in something exciting, worthwhile and that makes a real difference in the local community as well as having the chance to learn new skills. I have no doubt they will make a significant contribution to policing in Hertfordshire.”
