Welcome to the Special Constabulary
Special Constables play a crucial role in fighting crime and making our streets safer. Specials come from many different backgrounds and walks of life. They volunteer for a minimum of sixteen hours' duty per month, and form a vital link between their community and the police service.
Assistant Chief Constable, Richard Berry, recognises the great work that the Specials do:
“As you will all be aware, this Force is superbly served by the 154 members of the Special Constabulary. Together, these men and women dedicate their free time, on top of their regular jobs, to policing the county and by doing so make a huge contribution to helping us meet our aims.
We are extremely grateful for all they do – and in turn, for all they allow the Force to do.”
Further information will be published on this page when decisions regarding Special Constable recruitment have been confirmed
The Chief Constable, Suzette Davenport, has already declared that she is “a huge fan" of the Special Constabulary – a sentiment all of us who work with them will echo."
We are currently accepting applications from individuals who are interested in joining us as a Special Constable.
