Does being a Special Constable help me become a police officer?

Share by emailShare by email

Being a Special Constable will enable you to experience all aspects of police work and gain a wealth of professional knowledge.

Whilst time served as a Special will not guarantee a position as a regular officer, it gives you an insight into the service and will help you meet the criteria and gain the attributes needed to become a police officer.

You will be serving your community, gaining first-hand experience of the job and building up knowledge that will help with your police officer application should you wish to apply to become a regular police officer.
