Challenging and rewarding

Is there another side to you that’s looking for a challenging and rewarding experience? As a voluntary police officer you’ll make a real difference to the lives of people in Gloucestershire.

No two shifts are the same. You could be on foot patrol, policing major incidents. conducting house to-house enquiries, or presenting evidence in court.

We’re looking for quick thinking team players who can remain calm in a crisis and who want to gain a real sense of achievement as part of our Special Constabulary.

In return, you’ll get first-class training, make a difference to your community, and face new challenges and opportunities. Hours are flexible, you’ll make new friends and feel valued and wanted by us.

To become a Special Constable you need to attend one of our Information Evenings. Click the 'Book a place' button below.
