Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately no. There can be many a number of reasons why an individual is unable to join us and can include: age, employment, medical reasons, previous convictions, etc.

However, don’t be deterred from applying. Until you complete and return your application form then you wont know if you are elidable or not.

If you are unsuccessful during any part of the recruitment process you will be notified and you may be invited to reapply after a minimum of six months.

We understand that applicants to the Special Constabulary have commitments outside of Humberside Police and that they may not be in a position to commence their training when a course becomes available. We endeavour to be as flexible as possible, but applicants must understand that a place on training course can not be held open indefinitely and you may be asked to reconsider if you have the time to commit to the Special Constabulary.

You will be issued with all the uniform and equipment necessary to carry out the role of Special Constable.

You will have the same warranted powers, uniform and equipment as your regular colleagues, however, due to the level of training you will receive you will not be able to, or expected to, carry out all of the same tasks of a regular officer.

Being a Special Constable is purely voluntary and as such you do not get paid. However, you will be reimbursed for your out of pocket expenses such as travel.
