Re-joining the Special Constabulary

About you

If you have previously served as a Special Constable with Avon and Somerset Constabulary and your reason for leaving us is no longer preventing you from committing to 16 hours per month, then we are interested in hearing from you.

You must be able to deliver our force values in everything you do:

  • Public First
  • To be professional, friendly and interested
  • Today's Business Today
  • Quality Counts

What you need to know

We will look at each request to re-join us on an individual basis and you will be required to retake some parts of our recruitment process such as physical tests and vetting checks. Depending on your previous length of service, gap in service and prior training with us we will assess your needs in order to give you the right of level of training to get you back to an operational status as a Special Constable.

Application process

All enquiries about re-joining Avon and Somerset Specials should be made to the Special Constabulary Co-ordinator. See below for contact details.

In some cases where the gap in service is considerable, you may be required to complete our full recruitment process.
