Be part of something Special

Merseyside / July 02

Merseyside Police is currently recruiting for Special Constables.

If you are looking for a unique opportunity to develop new skills and meet new people, the Special Constabulary may be the role you are looking for.

Special constables are volunteer police officers, who come from all walks of life. They work both independently and alongside regular officers in Local Policing, Response, Roads Policing and other specialist departments within the Police, helping to keep communities safe.

Special Constables carry exactly the same powers as their full-time, paid, counterparts, which includes the power of arrest. They also wear the same uniform, the only difference being the 'SC' above a Special Constable's collar number.

Joining the Specials can give you the chance to make a real difference to your community, and enhance your skills. However, it is a demanding role, and it is asked that you give up at least 16 hours of your spare time each month, but the role opens up all sorts of opportunities. Special Constables are given regular training and access to CPD (continuous professional development) to ensure that they are fully-equipped to carry out the role of a Police Officer.
