- SYP - Special Constables
South Yorkshire Police are seeking to recruit Special Constables to start after November 2018.
Special Constables are volunteers who have the same powers as regular officers; they wear the same uniform and are issued with the same protective equipment including handcuffs and a baton. This is coupled with an understanding of the law and the teaching of various police procedures.
Specials, as they're known, come from all walks of life - they are teachers, taxi drivers, accountants and secretaries, or from many other careers - and they volunteer for a minimum of 16 hours a month to their local police force, forming a vital link between the regular police and the local community.
Joining the Specials opens up a world of opportunity for personal and professional advancement. Undergoing the training and then going out on patrol makes a welcome break from day-to-day life, bringing excitement and challenge with every day you volunteer.
Applicants must meet the minimum checkable history criteria, which must be taken into account for all individuals applying to work with South Yorkshire Police in any capacity. A minimum checkable history period of 3 Years has been identified for this role and successfully undergoing recruitment vetting procedure is a pre-requisite of employment with South Yorkshire Police.
