If you're wanting to see what it's like to be a Special Constable, take a moment to watch our recruitment video or have a read of an interview with one of our Specials.
We encourage men and women from all backgrounds to join the Special Constabulary, as it is important that it is representative of the communities it serves.
You must be 18 years of age or over, able to work a minimum of 16 hours a month and be living, working or studying in the South Yorkshire area. In addition, applications will be considered from those who live outside of the South Yorkshire area.
You must be honest, in good health and of good character.
You must either be a national of a country within the European Economic Area, or if not have leave to enter or remain in the UK free of restrictions.
We are interested in your potential, not paper qualifications. You must be able to speak and write clear English, as you will need to write short reports of incidents, write statements and may be asked to give evidence in court.
To apply for the Special Constabulary you can either attend a presentation evening(details below) or download ,complete and submit a hand written application form (see attached).
