It takes two – new cop proves that twins really do, do


It takes two – new cop proves that twins really do, do everything together.

A 21 year old has joined his twin brother as an officer in Greater Manchester Police this week, being sworn into the force at a formal attestation ceremony on Monday 3 April.

John Metcalfe followed in the footsteps of his twin brother Daniel this week, with the boys being based in the City of Manchester and Tameside divisions.

The brothers have had the perfect example in their father Tony, who has been an officer in the Force since 1994, having started life as a special constable in 1992.

Dad Tony spoke of his pride at seeing his two boys take on the role that he been doing all these years.

“I am absolutely proud as punch to see my boys follow in my footsteps, doing the job I love so much. I only hope that they have as much fun as I am and wish them all the success.”

Speaking about his attestation, John said: “Ever since I was younger I have wanted to be a police officer. I remember seeing my dad’s uniform and being in awe.

“Each day I now pinch myself because I am living my dream and it’s so much better because I’m doing it with my dad and brother.”
