Specialisms in the Special Constabulary

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


Special Constables undertaking more specialised policing roles, serving in specialist teams and developing specialist skill-sets, is not an entirely new phenomenon. There has however been significant growth over recent years in the scale and breadth of such ‘specialist’ Special Constabulary roles. This represents an important development in the growing capability and role of the Special Constabulary, but one which has been subject to relatively limited policy, practice, or academic attention.
