New special constables take to the streets of North Yorkshire

Published

on

Last month North Yorkshire Police welcomed another 13 new Special Constables to the force following an attestation ceremony at Northallerton Magistrates’ Court.
The attestation – which is when the officers are sworn in and given their warrant cards – followed the new officers’ intensive, initial training period of three months. They will now be assigned a tutor constable out on their neighbourhood beats, who will guide them through the next phase of their training which can take up to two years.

The officers were welcomed to North Yorkshire Police by Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Ken McIntosh after swearing their oath in front of the Magistrates. T/ACC McIntosh, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome our new volunteer police officers to North Yorkshire Police. Special Constables are a valuable part of the policing family whose work is very much appreciated by their regular colleagues and members of the community.
“In return for their incredibly generous and public spirited gesture of giving up their free to time to help protect our communities, they can look forward to a very rewarding, fulfilling and challenging career with our Special Constabulary.

“I would like to thank them for joining North Yorkshire Police, we are very grateful for their time, commitment and support.”

‘Specials’, as special constables are known, play a key role in local policing and have the same powers in law as regular police officers, including the power of arrest. However, the role of Specials can also extend into more complex areas of policing.

Specials come from all walks of life – they are teachers, taxi drivers, accountants and secretaries, or any number of other careers – and they all volunteer a minimum of four hours a week to their local police force, forming a vital link between the regular (full-time) police and the local community.

The new officers will be based at York (six), Harrogate (three), Scarborough (one), Skipton (one) and Selby (two).

These latest recruits bring the total number of newly attested specials across North Yorkshire Police to 37 so far this year.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
