Avon and Somerset Constabulary will consider transfer requests from Special Constables from home office and non-home office police forces.
If you are moving/have moved to our area and you are performing 16 hours per month or more as a Special in your current force, then we are interested in hearing from you. You must be able to continue this commitment and deliver our force values in everything you do:
Current Force guidance recommends that Specials live within a 15 mile radius of their station of posting.
Postings are decided on the basis of our Force need for personnel at particular locations. Individual preferences will be noted and attempts made to accommodate, depending on the Force's need at the time.
Initial contact to request an application should be made to us via your ‘Force Transfer Co-ordinator’ or ‘Special Constabulary Co-ordinator’. The transfer process is very similar to our standard recruitment process for Special Constables without the selection part of the process and includes:
Training will be assessed on an individual basis and level of training received will depend on previous training, receipt of training records from your current force and your current level of competence.
All transfer requests should be made via your home force transfer co-ordinator or Special Constabulary co-ordinator and should be referred to:Special Constabulary Co-ordinator
