Special Constables are special people.
Why? Because they give up their own time to perform the duties of a police officer around their regular jobs.
The Special Constabulary is a force of trained volunteers who support their local police. There are already some 250 specials in South Wales, who volunteer to give a minimum of four hours of their time each week to ‘Keep South Wales Safe’.
If you’re looking for a challenge outside of your everyday job, being a special can open up a world of opportunity. You’ll see more parts of life and human nature than most will ever see, and have the same powers as regular police officers.
As a special constable, you will:
Support South Wales Police in tackling crime
Provide a vital link between the organisation and the community, making the people on your patch feel safer
Develop your confidence and self-respect
Improve your communication skills
Your main duties will be conducting local, intelligence-based patrols and taking part in crime prevention initiatives, but with training available on an ongoing basis, your responsibility as a special will grow with experience.
