About the role of a Special Constable


People become a Special Constable for a variety of reasons and from different backgrounds – some individuals have free time and have a desire to work with the community; or are happy in their present job but want to do something totally different in their spare time. Others may have wanted to work in the police, and for different reasons have gone down a different career path.


In all these circumstances the Special Constabulary gives you the opportunity to have a second and fulfilling career. This is a great opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and gain experience in a wide range of policing duties.
