Special Constables are trained volunteers who have the same powers as regular police officers. In North Yorkshire and the City of York they play a crucial role in fighting crime and making our streets safer.
Specials, as Special Constables are known, come from many different backgrounds and walks of life. They volunteer around four hours per week and form a vital link between their community and the Police Service.
Once appointed, Specials have to complete a training programme, after which they have the same powers as regular police officers and wear the same uniform.
