World Horse Welfare Training Of Specials On Horseback A Success
12 years agoWorld Horse Welfare’s training of Norfolk Constabulary’s specials on horseback has been a success. Our Field Officer Jacko Jackson was asked by the Constabulary to assist with providing competency assessments for four officers to ensure they had the necessary riding skills, as well as assessing their horses. Justina Smith who is Assistant Manager at World Horse Welfare’s Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton also carried out the training session yesterday (Sunday 19 February 2012). The specials on horseback will be used as part of Norfolk Constabulary’s Operation Randall which was set up to drive down rural crime. Now the four special constables have passed their assessment, it is hoped that they will be up and running in the South Norfolk area at the beginning of March 2012. The initiative in Norfolk follows the success of specials on horseback in Hertfordshire which began in October 2009. World Horse Welfare Field Officer Nick White, who was a former mounted police officer and instructor from the Metropolitan Police, carried out the competency assessments of the four rural specials more than two years ago.
