Wiltshire Police are currently looking for applications from members of the public who are interested in becoming Special Constables.
Chief Constable Brian MOORE comments on the Force website: “ As I am sure you know, my colleagues and I are committed to delivering safe, satisfied and confident communities in Wiltshire. To achieve our goals, we need a strong, vibrant and motivated Special Constabulary and I am delighted with the progress we have made so far in recruiting new members, but we need to do much more. Being a Special Constable is a wonderfully positive way of contributing to your community. You will receive first class training and exposure to unique experiences that can only help enhance your personal and professional development.”
To support this recruitment drive, a number of familiarisation days are being planned around the County.
The next Special Constable Awareness Event is to be held on Wednesday 3 November, 7pm, at Swindon Gablecross Police Station. Anyone interested in becoming a Special Constable can book a place at the event by completing the on line booking form. Attendees will need to bring proof of identity in the form of photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving licence) as well as their confirmation of attendance receipt.
The presentation will last roughly an hour and will cover all aspects of being a Special Constable, the recruitment process and the training required. As part of the awareness event, after the main presentation, we will also run Question & Answer sessions for attendees to raise any particular queries to our Special Constables and other members of the recruitment team.
If you prefer to book over the telephone please call Andy Phillimore on 0845 408 7000 ext 7202314.
