Special Constables are Volunteer Police Officers who play an integral role in policing the Thames Valley. The role is diverse but demanding and you must be able to spare a minimum of 18 hours per month to join our busy teams across the force. No formal qualifications are required although we do expect honesty, integrity and a good level of physical fitness.
You will work closely alongside your regular colleagues, adding to a diverse range of skills and experiences from all walks of life to make a real difference in reducing crime - and the fear of crime within the communities we serve.
Being a Special Constable may not always be easy but we can guarantee you will find the work varied, challenging, rewarding and enjoyable. It will open you up to new opportunities, giving real job satisfaction and transferable skills. No two days are the same and you can find yourself attending any incident from burglaries and road traffic collisions to public order incidents, policing football matches and serious assaults.
Our Volunteer Police Officers are rightly proud of the work they do. If you want to make a difference, and have the drive and dedication to devote some of your free time to policing our communities then please contact us.
