Become a Special Constable in 2017

Published

on

police-pictureDYFED-POWYS POLICE is recruiting volunteers to join their Police family as Special Constables in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Powys.

Special Constables work alongside full-time police officers and have the same powers as a police officer whilst on duty, helping to provide a link between the police and our communities.

Working as a Special Constable can be done alongside studying, other employment or in retirement. You can use your experience from jobs and life to provide a different perspective and way of looking at some of our policing challenges.

Catrin Morgan, a Special Constable who also works full-time in Dyfed-Powys Police headquarters, said: “I’m working in full time catering at the moment so this is very different and exciting. Since working in the canteen and having the opportunity to speak to PCSOs and PCs I’ve found the job very interesting and wanted to have a good insight into their role. By being a Special Constable you’re able to see how the police work without giving anything up – I’ve still got my job but I’m giving back to the community.

“I started my training in January 2016 and had my ‘passing out’ in April. I work 16 hours a month – four hours per week – and can work more that if I want to. Each shift is different, from day to day and hour to hour.

“I would definitely recommend becoming a Special, if somebody does want to join the police force it’s a very good way to gain an insight without giving anything up. If you do like the role it’s a good way to become a full-time police officer.”

Dyfed-Powys Police is looking for enthusiastic people who have a special quality and are willing to volunteer their time to join the force as Special Constables in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Powys.

You will receive the necessary and appropriate training to allow you work alongside full-time police officers. You will have the same powers as a police officer whilst on duty, and help provide a link between the police and local communities.

An application pack and further information about the role is available on their website: http://bit.ly/2ioGkHj.

To apply, complete and return the Special Constable Application form by midnight on Thursday (Jan 5).
