Could you do something special? Become a volunteer police officer
Main article content
Staffordshire Police is once again recruiting for Special Constables to join the force.
Special Constables are volunteer police officers who have the same powers, uniform and equipment as regular officers and support front-line officers on response, neighbourhood and investigations teams.
The force is aiming to recruit 250 Special Constables and is specifically looking to recruit them in Cannock, Lichfield, Wombourne, Tamworth, Codsall, Longton, Burslem, Cheadle, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Leek.
Chief Officer for the force’s Special Constabulary, Tony Athersmith said: “We’re looking to recruit people from all communities across Staffordshire who will make a valuable contribution to our force and the communities we serve.
“Being a Special Constable is a role like no other as no two shifts are ever the same. I would recommend this opportunity to anyone who has an interest in policing, helping others and keeping our county safe.
“If you have a career, whether full-time or part-time, or other day-to-day commitments but still have some spare time and want to volunteer – this may be the opportunity for you.”
