Benefits of joining

New experiences

There's a lot of variety involved in police work, from regular patrols to project-driven work focusing on local crime problems.

The experiences you gain will help you look at life from a different point of view.

New skills

The Kent Special Constabulary is no ordinary group of people. Drive and dedication are the key attributes needed when you make the decision to volunteer.

Through an on going training programme, Specials develop skills that will stand them in good stead for life; commitment, quick-thinking, team working and an ability to cope with the unexpected and guide others in times of crisis.

New people

As part of a team, the experiences you share can lead to lasting friendships.

You will learn more about life and human nature than most people will ever see.


As a Special you will discover a lot you didn't know about yourself, as well as just how much you are capable of.

You will develop self-respect and self-confidence and you will earn the right to feel pride in having played a significant role in helping your community.
