It shows the force having to arrest people for different reasons, such as public order offences, drink driving, break ins and more.

The footage provides an interesting insight into how police officers in Reading operate, and the nature of the job.

The video shows some attempting to get violent with the officer, and the police having to call an ambulance for an unresponsive woman.

The sergeant said in the Tweet: "Admittedly this only shows small slice of my 2019.

"But it does highlight the wide range of jobs you can attend as Special Constable in a busy town.

"If this kind of "extreme volunteering" piques your interest, head over to https://tvpcareers.co.uk/opportunities/special-constables/ to get info on how to apply."
