- "Becoming a special, as a person, would give you an insight into situations which ordinary people may not face. This role stretches you and further develops your skills and confidence."
- "With the right commitment and humility, the organisation as a whole offers friendship, comradery, opportunity and a genuine satisfaction of making a difference."
- "I joined the Special Constabulary to learn new skills and help out in the community. You can really see results and feel positive about your work".
- "It's great being able to engage with the community while helping make Derby safer. It is a great way to put something back into the community by reducing crime. Above all, I have met great friends within the job and it is great fun!"
- "I had previously been a cadet in Lincolnshire and wanted to continue to be involved with policing in the local community. This is a good way of getting to know the local area and experience of the police service".
- "I've wanted to be a police officer since I was a small boy. I know, doesn't every little boy? So I decided to look into joining the Specials to achieve a childhood dream. It lets you in on a world you probably don't know exists, and there is never a dull moment".
- "Becoming a Special will make you a better person and equip you with all sorts of extra skills which can be transferred to your private and professional life outside the police force."
