The 22 Special Constables are: Kristen Holliman (Basildon), Luke Addington, Kelly Chamberlain, Matthew Brinkley and Paul Panfield (Braintree), Stephen Piper and Joshua Mason (Brentwood), Michael Binns, James Braddy, John-Luke Chippefield and Lauren Russell (Chelmsford), Liam Kerr (Clacton), Kate Burns-Green and Jessica Smith (Colchester), Kayleigh Arnold and James Grover (Grays), Reanna Lawrence (Harlow), Laura Carter and Martin Sooss (Loughton) and Emily Maclean, Sarah Ellis and Victoria Wright (Rayleigh).
