Word from the Chief


Special Constables play a vital role in helping to keep our communities safe.

Through preventing and investigating crime, tackling anti social behaviour and reducing disorder, Specials provide a much appreciated active presence in all areas.

As a former special myself I understand the sacrifice and contribution that our Special Contstable colleagues make and have huge admiration and gratitude for the contribution they make to policing across Bedfordshire.

As a Special you will develop personally and professionally, learning skills which may help you in your current line of work or to gain employment. You may also decide that you would like to pursue a full time career in the police service. 

We are proud of the work that we do with the diverse communities of Bedfordshire.  As a Special Constable you will be working for the benefit of the community.  That is why we are keen to recruit people from all walks of life and a range of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds because we know you better understand the real issues and concerns facing those who live and work in your neighbourhood.

Work with us to protect people and fight crime together.

Garry Forsyth, Chief Constable
