SPECIAL police constables are needed as Sussex Police seeks to boost numbers.

About 310 people in the county give up their time to work as volunteer police officers – with the same equipment and powers, and much of the same training, as full-time officers.

Now the force is seeking 120 new recruits to spare at least four hours a week in a bid to boost numbers to 500 by March 2013.
