Expression of Interest - Special Constable New RecruitsPost: Special Constable Volunteer role (unpaid) – expenses can be claimed
Hours: Minimum of 16 hours per month
Location: Cleveland Police area
Cleveland Police are looking to recruit high calibre candidates from all sectors of our communities to this challenging but very rewarding voluntary role. As policing is 24/7, 365 days a year, Special Constables can fit their policing around their often busy lives very easily, and it is very flexible to do. Whilst a challenging role, we have an excellent initial and ongoing training programme, and you will be supported throughout.
Special Constables are volunteer Police Officers who hold the exact same powers as regular Police Officers and who wear the same uniform, attending the same frontline policing incidents. Volunteering with the Special Constabulary may particularly appeal to those who are looking to put something back into their local communities.
As a Special Constable, you'll work alongside our regular officers, forging strong partnerships in the community, patrolling our streets, preventing crime and interacting with all kinds of people. A Special Constable can act as a positive force for change - bringing with them an extensive pool of skills, talents, experience, local knowledge and diverse backgrounds - as well as enhancing the overall level of service provided by the police.
