“I never ever believed I was going to be a police officer," Rothstein said. "It all started off when I was a victim of anti-Semitism and got to know the local police officers. There were times I phoned the police and no-one came because they didn’t have any available. They said ‘why don’t you become a special constable?’ I said ‘are you having a laugh?’ but it all went from there. I did my training and they were all so welcoming."
