A Parish Special Constable is an experienced Safer Community Team Special Constable who has achieved independent patrol status.
As a Parish Special Constable, you will be the visible presence of policing in a specific area; in some ways this is a reintroduction to having a “Bobby on the Beat”. Parish Special Constables look to meet the community's needs by working with local organisations such as the local Parish/Town council and community groups.
You can police a specific village; group of villages; ward; or area of your choice and work within the local Safer Community team alongside regular officers and PCSOs, and will be the dedicated resource and ‘specialist’ on the area you police.
Duties will include: high-visible patrols; intelligence-gathering; tackling the “low level crimes” such as such as anti-social behaviour; littering; dog-fouling; and traffic-related issues – such as speeding and HGV policing; being the hub of the community - setting up wider voluntary schemes to address a community’s issues, for example Speedwatch.
We also encourage Parish Special Constables to attend local events and heighten the Police’s presence in schools and the community, educating about crime prevention and building relationships with members of the community.
