Congratulations to Kirsty Monks on passing her written and physical exams, to earn a place with our boys and girls in blue.
Kirsty won't mind me saying that when she called me up she was in a blind panic about her ability to pass a strength test for entry into the police force. Through a combination of intense strength conditioning and increase in quality nutrition, she turned her despair into inspiration, and passed with flying colours. Kirsty can now be seen driving a white car with flashing lights around South Ribble, keeping our streets safe. Well done, Kirsty. Your determination is a credit to you, and the police force's gain.
