Special Constables


16 Hours Per Month

Joining a unique police force on railways across Britain, our Special Constables have a crucial frontline role in one of the most challenging environments there are. Here, we’ll ask you to make a regular commitment of at least sixteen hours per month. During this time you’ll increase our uniformed presence at main line stations and on the London Underground network.

You’ll have the same powers as regular officers. Similarly, your role will include foot and vehicle patrols, assisting at incidents, helping passengers or policing events, to name but a few.

As a volunteer you’ll be reimbursed for your travel, refreshments and any out of pocket expenses. That’s not the only benefit. You’ll be making a positive difference to people’s lives. You’ll benefit from working in a fast paced and ever changing environment. We’ve found that people’s confidence and assertiveness grows through this experience. In fact, you’ll gain a number of skills that will transfer to your ‘day job’, and of course this will also look great on your CV.
