The Special Constabulary consists of volunteer officers, who give up their time freely to assist with the policing of Greater Manchester. As a Special Constable you will work alongside regular officers, and PCSOs in the local neighbourhood policing teams and you will be expected to commit as an average a minimum of four hours service per week. Being a Special Constable is a great way to give something back to your community, develop new skills or learn what being a police officer is really like.
As a Special Constable you will be provided with full training, a uniform, and out of pocket expenses and have all the powers and authority of regular officers.
