What is Employer Supported Policing (ESP)?


Employer Supported Policing (ESP) is a partnership between employers, their staff and Derbyshire Constabulary, to support and promote the Special Constabulary and PSVs.

Through ESP, local businesses and other organisations work with Derbyshire police to promote the Special Constabulary and to encourage staff to become Special Constables and PSVs.

Supporting organisations allow their staff to be trained as Special Constables and provide them with paid leave to undertake police duties. Special Constables have full police powers to carry out patrols in key areas in Derbyshire.
