Special constable hangs up his handcuffs to fight coronavirus


Bot

An incredibly talented Special Constable has temporarily hung up his handcuffs as he heads to hospital to help tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.

Joshua Michie not only serves with Northumbria Police Motor Patrols team as a Special, but he’s also a trained doctor working for the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Although the 25-year-old is focusing all his attention on treating the vulnerable and keeping his patients safe during the coronavirus crisis, he would also like to lace up his boots and help officers on the beat.

He said: “This is unprecedented and I never thought I would be working through a pandemic. It is an experience which will definitely stay with me.

“At the moment, I’m socially isolating when I’m not working in the hospital. It’s really hard because I love being a Special and I’m desperate to get back out there.

“I would love to be helping with patrols – I’d like to have the chance to be out in the community talking to people, engaging with them and getting them to see things from another angle.
