Coventry groomer is face of West Midlands Police recruitment campaign

Coventry dog groomer Donna Vaughan is the face of West Midlands Police’s new Special Constable recruitment campaign.

Being a Special Constable enables Vaughan, who grew up watching crime documentaries and the ITV serial drama The Bill, to run her dog grooming and hydrotherapy centre Millie’s Paws Grooming Studio while also being part of West Midlands Police’s homicide unit.

In the Special Constable role she takes part in live investigations, searches bodies, vehicles and homes, carries out CCTV analysis, writes statements and conducts interviews.

She told the BBC: “I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many officers from various roles who know I’m a dog groomer and hydrotherapist, and some have even requested my services.”

Vaughan has no plans to quit dog grooming permanently.

“Being able to become a special allows me to still have my business that I’ve worked hard to build up, and also do the police work,” she told the BBC.

“I enjoy my day job, but I also get to wear the uniform, as well.”
