Special Constable

16 Hours a Month

Our Special Constables work closely with our Regular Officers in small teams and gain from specialist training and a wide variety of deployment types and location. With the same powers and the same uniform, you’ll play a key role in maintaining our extremely high standards of policing.

This is a hugely varied role, so you’ll need to be ready for anything – from patrolling by foot or vehicle, through providing a reassuring presence on trains or at stations, to assisting at incidents including theft, assault or illegal travel.

You’ll travel, too. You might be carrying out your duties while moving at 125 miles per hour from one city to another. And of course you’ll come into contact with people from all walks of life, often at stressful or emotional times for them. One thing is certain – no two days will ever be the same.

To join us, you’ll need outstanding resilience and dedication. You’ll benefit from unrivalled training and investment in your development. After all, we need you to be the best there is.

Whatever your background, you’ll be truly valued as an integral member of our force. We’ll reimburse all your expenses. We’ll help you develop the talents that will enhance every aspect of your life – from leadership to responsiveness.
