    Special constables have been working with full-time police officers to crack down on traffic offences in Nottingham and the project is going to be ramped up in the coming months.

    Since March, special constables have been giving up extra time at the weekends to deal with traffic offences and have handed out almost 30 parking tickets, seized two vehicles for having no tax or insurance and submitted several intelligence reports. 

    Nottinghamshire Police

    While the numbers might seem small, Nottinghamshire Police says this signals a new era of partnership working with regular officers. 

    Operation Flicker is now set to run up to three times a month between now and Christmas.
