Special constable recruitment now open

I have received the following message via neighbourhood alert.

Monday 25th November 2019: Volunteering doesn’t come more rewarding than this!

We are now recruiting Special Constables. If this is the volunteering opportunity you’ve been looking for, click here to apply  [NB There is no upper age limit]

You already have a career you love – now you want a different challenge in your spare time.

As a special constable officer you’ll have the same uniform and powers as regular officers.

From being first on the scene and taking knives off the streets to educating young people, you’ll be working alongside regular police officers and PCSOs to make Sussex safer.

Our ‘Specials’, as the special constables are known, come from all walks of life. Specials are men and women of all races and faiths. They’re teachers, taxi drivers, chefs, accountants and secretaries and they all volunteer a minimum of 16 hours a month. When you join Sussex Police, you become part of our policing family – we are with you each step of the way.

Are you an honest, respectful and selfless person who wants to do something important in your spare time? Could you be there in a stranger’s time of need? Are you prepared to protect others on or off duty? And are you prepared for how time-consuming this volunteer role will be? If so, we want to hear from you.

What does your spare time look like? Do something Special, apply today here.
