What are Special Constables?

Special constables are volunteer police officers who come from all walks of life. They may be at home bringing up a family, in full-time employment, between jobs, a student or retired, but they all give their time free of charge for the good of the local community.

Our specials work alongside neighbourhood policing teams across the county performing the same duties as regular officers, which can range from general patrols to involvement in specific policing operations or events. Special constables receive the same high level training and uniform and have the same powers and authority as regular police officers.

What are we looking for?

Perhaps you dream of becoming a police officer at one of the best forces in the country, but want to know what the job really entails, or maybe you are looking to give something back to the community. We are looking for keen and enthusiastic people who are seeking a sense of personal fulfilment and who want to develop their personal and professional skills, to join us as special constables.

Training and hours

As a special, you will receive the same training as regular police officers and will be issued with the same equipment. You will work flexible hours with a minimum requirement of one shift of four hours per week and provide your time and expertise without financial reward, although you can claim travel expenses to and from work.

Your commitment – the low down

It goes without saying that you will need to be fully committed and able to give your time to train to become a fully qualified special. You will need to be available to attend training courses over five residential weekends in a nine week period, which will be followed by additional training days.

  • It takes an average of six months from application to starting your initial training course.
  • Once posted, you will be expected to come on duty for a MINIMUM of four hours every week.
  • You will be attached to a local policing team who will task you with your duties, according to their risk and threat priorities.

What’s in it for you?

Joining the specials can give you a great sense of fulfilment and help enhance your personal and professional skills.

  • As a special you will have the chance to get involved with the community and make a real difference to people living in Lancashire.
  • You will learn all the necessary skills required to be able to patrol independently. You will have full police powers and perform the same duties as regular police officers.
  • You will be part of one of the best police forces in the country and benefit from working as part of a professional team of police officers.
