What is a Special Constable?
Special Constables are part-time, voluntary police officers with all the same powers as fulltime regular police officers. They come from all walks of life and join us for a variety of reasons. Becoming a Special Constable really is one of the most exciting and rewarding voluntary opportunities available!
Special Constabularies have been around for hundreds of years; today they are a vital part of all Police Forces across the country, supporting and enhancing the work of regular police officers.
At Northamptonshire Police, we recognise the immense value that Special Constables add! We want people to come and join us and help make a difference, and make our county a safer place!
Anybody can apply to become a Special Constable and the role is so dynamic and diverse, there’s something in it for everyone!

Specials are a vital part of our organisation. I’ve been a Police Officer for 13 years and seen the difference Special Constables can make. They are giving up their time to come and support us and help make the county a safer place. The diversity of special constables also bring lots of different life experiences to consider policing in a different way"
