Gwent Police has welcomed five new Special Constables into service in Caerphilly County Borough.
The volunteer police officers, who have the same powers as full-time police officers, will be working in the Bargoed, Bedwas, Blackwood, Risca and Ystrad Mynach areas.
They include a supermarket worker, a carer and a customer service manager.
The new Special Constables are:

- SC Claire Miller, 20-years-old, from Cardiff (stationed at Bedwas) currently a Customer Service Manager in Tesco Head Office.

- SC Matthew Pryce, 23 years old, from Caerphilly (to be stationed at Ystrad Mynach) currently a Sales Consultant in retail.
Christine Smith, Special Inspector for Caerphilly, said: “Members of the Special Constabulary are just that – special people who want to put something back into the communities where they live and work.
“Special Constables come from a variety of backgrounds including carers, students, engineers, shop assistants, and accountants, they may be bringing up a family, between jobs or retired. We are delighted to be increasing our numbers in the Caerphilly Local Policing Unit and hope it will encourage others to join.”
