Description

The MPS Special Constabulary is a force of volunteers who work with and offer support to regular Metropolitan Police Officers, providing a vital link with the people of London’s 32 Boroughs. Afforded the same powers as regular officers and wearing a similar uniform, Specials are everyday people who are prepared to give up at least four hours of their spare time each week to do something positive for themselves and their community.

Special Constables receive free travel on TFL underground and bus services and travelling expenses where necessary. You also receive an allowance for refreshments bought while on duty. You will also receive your uniform, together with a further allowance for footwear.
