I would like the number of Special Constables who were fully recruited to become voluntary police officers, eg passing the entire recruitment process.
I would also like the same as above but for Police Constables.
My main objective is to know how many 18 year olds apply for both PC and SC roles and of those applicants, how many 18 year olds are fully recruited as a PC or SC.
