Special Constable Campaign June 2022

Dyfed Powys Police

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join us as a Special Constable. 

As a Special Constable you’ll be on the front line of policing, you’ll be one of the first faces that people see when they need us most. No two days will be the same, some things you’ll be involved in are:

  • responding to incidents and calls for help from the public
  • speaking to victims of crime, making sure they get the best possible service
  • recording and investigating crime
  • making arrests, interviewing suspects, and taking statements from witnesses
  • searching for missing people
  • giving evidence in court
  • policing large public events, concerts and demonstrations
  • dealing with road traffic collisions and offences
  • carrying out proactive patrols to assist with problem solving

As a Special Constable we ask that you volunteer for a minimum of 16 hours a month which could include weekends, public holidays and evenings.

Please note:

  • If applicable, applicants must upload the required evidence of their qualifications when applying as no late evidence will be accepted.
  • All prospective special constables will be required to have their fingerprints and a DNA sample taken.  This is in accordance with police regulations.
  • Full training is provided, with a blend of face to face sessions, online learning and self study workbooks including a 6 month weekend programme Friday 2pm – Sunday 5pm (January 2023).  Please note that you must be available to attend all sessions.

Joining the Special Constabulary opens up a world of opportunities for personal and professional development. Undergoing the training and then going out on patrol makes a welcome break from day-to-day life, bringing excitement and challenge every day you volunteer, and giving something special back to the community we’re all part of.

If you feel you have these skills, and want to make a difference in your community, then we want to hear from you!
