Special Constables

Special Constables have the same power, uniform and responsibilities as regular (paid) police officers but volunteer on a part-time basis.

They come from all walks of life and backgrounds. They volunteer a minimum of sixteen hours per month to support local policing.

We are recruiting Special Constables from 10 to 31 October 2016. In the meantime, you can make an expression of interest by following this link

Being a Special Constable is not easy. You will be faced with challenging and confrontational situations that most people will never come across in their lifetime. But the rewards can vastly outweigh the challenges. You will gain confidence and new skills, work with a team of equally amazing people, and ultimately, you will have helped people in need or made their life better.

If you would like to join us, we are looking for resilient people with a real passion for serving the public, with proven life experience and customer service skills.

Effective communication skills and strong working ethics are vital attributes and you must be able to commit your spare time to the intensive training period, as well as giving up 16 hours each month.
