Becoming a Special
Not everyone has what it takes to become a special constable - only those with the character, integrity and community values to hold a position of trust and responsibility.
Who we're looking for
You must be aged 18-57 and able to meet the physical and mental demands of being a Special. You can be of any nationality (although you must have the permanent right to remain in the UK if you are from a non-EEA country) and have been resident in the UK for the three years before applying. A good standard of English, a presentable appearance, compassion and tact are important, as is a willingness to commit at least 200 hours a year. There are a number of jobs that are incompatible with being a special constable - please see the precluded occupations list before you apply.
