Do you want to be a Special Constable for Hertfordshire Constabulary?


Hertfordshire Constabulary is asking residents to consider becoming Special Constables in the coming year.

SCs are part-time, voluntary police officers with all the same powers as a regular officer, which get involved in all areas of frontline policing.

Once initial training is complete, Specials are coached by regular officers to complete their Police Action Checklists and are then deemed fit for independent patrol. On average this can take around 12 months.

Special Constabulary Chief Officer, Mark Kendrew, said: “The opportunity to gain experience in specialist departments, at hours and dates to suit you, is uniquely available to Hertfordshire’s Special Constabulary.

“Our Special Constables tell us that they find the role gives them experiences they would never have if they didn’t volunteer in this way, and provides them with a whole host of new skills.”

David Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, said: “Specials play a vital role in keeping the county safe and I am keen to welcome as many as possible into the force.”
