Special Constables, are volunteer police officers. They have the same police powers, uniforms and equipment as regular police officers. But Special Constables give up their free time to help people and communities across Essex.

They don’t get paid for their police work but they are reimbursed for expenses. This includes costs like travel.

Special Constables are given training and support to prepare them to become a volunteer police officer. They develop new skills, make friends and protect those who live in, work in, study in and visit Essex.

A Special Constable is an extraordinary person. A special kind of person.
