Special Constables are volunteer Police Officers. They have the same police powers, uniforms and equipment as regular Police Officers but volunteer in their spare time. Special Constables do not get paid, but are reimbursed for expenses.
As a Special Constable you will help patrol Bedfordshire’s rural and urban communities while learning new skills and making a real difference to the communities around you by working together to protect the public and fight crime.
Our Special Constables are valued, supported and integrated into the wider policing family.
Who can apply?
You can apply to be a Special Constable as long as you are over the age of 18 and are a British Citizen, an EC/EEA National or Commonwealth Citizen or a Foreign National with no restrictions to live and work in the UK. We welcome applications from candidates with disabilities and will do all we can to make reasonable adjustments.
