Specials recruitment for 2018 has launched today!
Special Constables are part-time, voluntary Police Officers with all the same powers as fulltime regular Police Officers. They come from all walks of life and join us for a variety of reasons. Becoming a Special Constable really is one of the most exciting and rewarding voluntary opportunities available!
Specials are out on patrol in the community, attending crime scenes, monitoring traffic, and making arrests. Most importantly, the Special Constables act as a safe, reassuring presence for the people of Bedfordshire working together to fight crime and keep the people safe. Find out more.
