Special Constables

The Special Constabulary is a vital resource for Dyfed-Powys Police; they provide valuable support to regular police officers and increase the police presence within our communities.

They are men and women from all walks of life, varied ethnic backgrounds and all sections of the community – teachers, farmers, shop assistants, house wives, whether in full or part time employment or at home bringing up a family – ordinary people who want to actively give something back to their community.

As a Special in Dyfed-Powys Police you will work alongside regular officers and will be expected to commit to 16 hours service a month. Being a Special is a great way to develop new skills or learn what being a police officer is really like. Officers wear the same police uniform as a regular officer, and are issued with the same equipment; the only difference is that Special Constables collar numbers all begin with a seven.

Being a special constable may not always be easy, but you will find the work challenging, varied and immensely enjoyable.
