We do not record a percentage of Special Constables for each of your requests and we have therefore provided the total instead, the accuracy of these figures rely on Special Constables inputting their own hours.

These figures do not include any Special Constables who have resigned and this does not include any Special Constables in other areas of Policing e.g. Airport or our Tri-Force (collaboration between Avon and Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Police to provide Specialist Operational Services).

FOI reference: 1119/16.
