Bedfordshire Police's next information evening for would-be Special Constables will be held on Monday 3 April at Dunstable Police Station.
From 7.30pm, members of the public who are interested in volunteering with the force will have the chance to hear more about the Special Constabulary from serving Specials. The information evening will also cover the application process, from completing an initial application form through to the training received by successful applicants.
The Special Constabulary is the UK's volunteer police force. Specials work closely with full time Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSO's) both to patrol Bedfordshire's rural and urban communities, and volunteer in specialist units. After completing their initial training and once they have taken their oaths, Specials have a further two years of on-the-job tuition and support from experienced colleagues before they become independent.
Special Constables must be over 18 and able to commit a minimum of 16 hours a month to the role, although Bedfordshire's Specials volunteer an average of 28 hours a month.
