Members of the public who want to make a difference in local communities are being asked if they could be a police officer, as Cleveland Police opens recruitment for police constables on 27th January.

A career as a constable is challenging but offers an excellent opportunity for
those who want to become an integral part of communities, protect the public and prevent and detect crime.

The Force will close the applications process after four weeks or after 400 applications have been received.

The Force will also be recruiting for special constables and will close recruitment when 200 applications have been received, or after four weeks.

A web chat will be hosted between 6pm and 7pm on Thursday 14th January where members of the public can ask questions about any elements of the recruitment process.

Temporary Chief Constable, Iain Spittal, said: “We are delighted to be offering people the opportunity to apply for the position of police constable and special constable again this year. We re-started our recruitment campaign in May
2014 following a five-year freeze and since then we have recruited 47 Police Constables and 17 Special Constables as well as 16 transferees from other forces.

“A career in policing is challenging, however, it provides first class training and will present opportunities for progression into specialist policing roles. It is
an excellent opportunity. The ideal candidates will be individuals who are honest, hardworking, enthusiastic and truly committed to making a genuine difference for our communities.

“We are looking to recruit the best and if you believe you have what it takes to be part of our team then we would like to hear from you. The recruitment process includes the national Police Officer competency based application form, assessment centre for shortlisted candidates and a formal in force interview. Once this is completed candidates will progress to the recruitment
phase which includes fitness testing, medical, vetting, references and financial checks.”

Man arrested after paint thrown over homeless man Michael Cash who was later found dead

Published

on

Micheal Cash was sprayed with red paint while he was outside of a Tesco Express store in Eston, Middlesbrough in an incident that has shocked the nation.

A video was then uploaded by a Tesco shopper who claimed “This is how we deal with the beggars on the street. He is not even a beggar we spray them to death”

Sadly just days after the assault Micheal Cash was found dead in a local Cemetery, Police say that both incidents are not linked.

Police have now arrested a local man and released him on bail after he faced questioning for assault and criminal damage.

Cleveland Police have been working extremely hard on this investigation behind the scenes and as part of that investigation have arrested a local man on suspicion of assault and the criminal damage he has now been released on bail.

CPS require further evidence before he can be charged and have allowed the man to be released on police bail while under investigation for the charges of assault and criminal damage.

Releasing a statement police have said “A 33-year-old man has this afternoon been arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal damage following an alleged incident near Tesco Express on Eston High Street on Sunday 9th September, which left 32-year-old Michael Cash covered in paint. The man has been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.”

Police have not linked the assault and death together confirming there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding Micheal Cash’s death despite tensions being high police have requested people do not speculate on social media.

Days before Cash was found dead he appeared in a video sitting in front of Tesco covered in red paint with the accompanying words “This is how we deal with the beggars on the street. He is not even a beggar we spray them to death”. The man responsible for releasing this footage has claimed he only filmed the video and had nothing todo with the paint.

Claiming he simply wanted to highlight the issue of homeless people sitting outside this supermarket, finding the whole incident funny and claiming he does not feel responsible for Michael’s death but does feel sorry for him and his family

The shocking video was shared on Facebook of Micheal Cash outside of Tesco Express in Normanby.

Crime Scene Investigators could be seen in the bushes within the cemetery and quickly put a cordon in place.

It has been speculated that Cash killed himself following the incident, but until circumstances are known we will not be able to speculate and would urge members of the public not to do so until full circumstances surrounding the death have been released.

Police are only investigating the assault and criminal damage aspect and do not believe there to be anything suspicious in relation to Cash’s death.

Police have asked people not to speculate on social media regarding the incident.

Detective Inspector Matt Hollingsworth said: “Police are aware of the speculation on social media regarding the cause of the man’s death but we are not linking the assault with his death.

Police have also confirmed that a man who was arrested in relation to criminal damage and assault has now been released on police bail while officers carry out further investigations.

“Officers are carrying out enquiries in relation to the assault outside of Tesco and would appeal for anyone with information or anyone who witnessed it to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting 166668, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”
