Special Constables patrolled West Kent on Saturday night - cracking down on crime in Maidstone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.

In Tonbridge and Malling, officers patrolled Borough Green, Kings Hill, Snodland and East Malling, targeting anti-social behaviour, speeding drivers and areas that have experienced burglaries in recent weeks. 

One man in Tonbridge was issued with an order to leave the town, following drunken behaviour.

In Maidstone, a 17 year-old man from Gillingham was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply ecstasy. 

He was later released on bail until 2 March. Three men were also arrested on suspicion of assault, and later released on bail. 

Officers also patrolled Coxheath and Parkwood, seizing some alcohol from underage people in Coxheath.

In Tunbridge Wells, a driver was reported for driving without insurance and without a licence.

Police Constable Sharon Turner from Kent Police said: 'The special constabulary allows us to put in place additional patrols to supplement day-to-day policing, and to proactively target local policing issues, whether that be excess speed or offences such as burglary. 

'Once again, this operation was scheduled for the pay day weekend, which is traditionally a busy weekend. 

'The 15 additional officers on patrol all made a valuable contribution to keeping Kent a safe place to live and socialise.'
