Why become a Special?
Special Constables are in a great position to help the local community and make it a safer place to live, free from fear. As a Special, you get a feeling of achievement and accomplishment at having done something to help others, while supporting regular officers and contributing to the local community.
Becoming a Special can help you to discover a lot about yourself. Aside from the satisfaction and enjoyment of the work itself, you will:
• Learn new skills and abilities
• Have your experiences broadened
• Develop self-confidence
• Improve your communication
• Improve your motivation
• Meet a wide range of people
Joining the Specials opens up a world of opportunity for personal and professional advancement. Undergoing the training and then going out on patrol makes a welcome break from day-to-day life, bringing excitement and challenge with every day you volunteer.
