Special Constable Recruitment Evening

Special Constable Recruitment Evening

Stansted has been without a Police Special since Steve Dale’s retirement earlier this year. Fancy stepping into his shoes?

If so, Essex Police are holding a Recruitment Information Evening for people interested in becoming a Volunteer Police Officer next Wednesday at 6.30pm at their headquarters in Chelmsford.

The evening on August 30 will consist of a series of short presentations about being a Special Constable; the various roles available within the Special Constabulary and the recruitment process. There will be an opportunity after the presentations to ask any questions.

Please note that these are not drop in sessions and you must register via the link below. Further information about the event will be sent to you once booked.

Book your place on the in-person Special Constable recruitment evening


What is a Special Constable?

Special Constables are volunteer Police Officers. They have the same police powers, uniforms and equipment as regular Police Officers but sacrifice their free time on a voluntary basis, organising their busy personal lives, day jobs and other commitments around police duties. They do not get paid, but are reimbursed for expenses.

As a Special in Essex you will learn new skills, see new things and make tangible differences to the lives of the public.
