The Special Constabulary is a vital resource in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in Derbyshire.
Special Constables are hard-working and devoted individuals who, after a hard day at work, still have the drive and dedication to devote some of their free time to work alongside regular police officers and Police Community Support Officers to help to police their local communities. Their role within the force is therefore very much appreciated and invaluable.
Special Constables play a key role in crime reduction, detection and incident response adding additional capacity to the services provided by regular officers. By providing a visible uniformed presence, special constables help to reduce the fear of crime and promote confidence within communities.
Special Constables in Derbyshire can either work with a Safer Neighbourhood or reactive team helping to implement lasting solutions to local issues. Safer Neighbourhood Policing is all about having dedicated local teams making areas safer whilst working with communities to make them a more pleasant place to live.
The SNTs are made up of uniformed police officers, Police Community Support Officers and Special Constables. They work in partnership with local agencies to address the concerns in their particular area. In Derbyshire our partners include all eight district councils, Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council, the fire service, parish councils, the business community and other groups such as Neighbourhood Watch.
