Special constables are volunteer officers who have the same powers and responsibilities as regular officers and carry out the same roles.
Specials come from all walks of life and volunteer their spare time for a minimum of 16 hours a month. They are highly trained and play an essential role in preventing, reducing and tackling crime and keeping the communities of Wiltshire safe.
Being a special constable means investigating crimes, dealing with violence or public order incidents, helping to find missing persons, attending the scenes of road traffic collisions and many other incidents that regular officers are involved in.
Whatever you do as a special, you will helping victims of crime and the vulnerable and helping to keep Wiltshire one of the safest places to live.
If you feel that you have what it takes to be a special constable, can give up at least 16 hours a month and would like to give back to your community doing what must be the most rewarding volunteer role there is, then get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
