Police in Flintshire carried out a successful operation this weekend, targeting drink and drug drivers in an effort to make the county’s roads safer.

Operation Blue Onslaught saw six Special Constables from Flintshire North and South volunteering a collective total of 83 hours between Friday 2nd June and Sunday 3rd June.

A police spokesperson said, “The operation was a marked success, with a total of 53 roadside breath tests being carried out and two tickets issued.”

“Thankfully, no one was found to be driving under the influence. The operation helped highlight how North Wales Police takes a zero-tolerance approach to drink and drug drivers.”

Special Constables are voluntary Police officers who choose to spend their free time helping others. They have the same equipment and powers as regular officers but choose to work shifts in their spare time.

The success of Operation Blue Onslaught underscores the valuable contribution of Special Constables to community safety. Their commitment to volunteering their time to ensure the safety of Flintshire’s roads is commendable.

North Wales Police are currently recruiting for more Special Constables. If you think you’ve got what it takes and are interested in making a difference in your community, you can find out more about the role and how to apply on the Police Jobs Wales website.
