Special Constables are volunteers who work with and support Cheshire Constabulary to achieve the force priorities and objectives. Special Constables come from all walks of life, we currently have: teacher, taxi drivers, accountants and secretaries all working for the Special Constabulary. As a Special Constable, you are required to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours a week. You will be a vital link between the regular police force and the local community. Once you have completed training, you have the same powers as regular officers and wear the same uniform. Undergoing the training and then undertaking patrols makes a welcome break from day-to-day life, bringing excitement and challenge with every day you volunteer.
