Employer Supported Policing Scheme

Employer Supported Policing is a scheme where you can support your staff can become Special Constables (volunteer police officers).

Benefits to you and your employees

Having staff members who are Specials can help your business become more involved with the local community.

It can also help by:
  • increasing your employee's abilities - they learn new skills during their training that can be transferred to your business such as communication, conflict management, confidence, time-management, leadership and assertiveness skills
  • showing your commitment to making a difference in your community 
  • allowing you to support local events

How can your business help?

Your business can become part of the Employer Supported Policing scheme. It is a partnership between your business and the police to support individuals who wish to volunteer their time to help the community.

The scheme helps you support employees so they can access the training needed to become a Special Constable. 

We also have our own Kent Police Employer Supported Policing Scheme for our staff who wish to become Special Constables. We provide 8 hours of paid leave per month, with a minimum of 8 hours to be committed by the individual in their own time.

How you can support your employees

  • Option 1

    Support and promote the recruitment of Special Constables within the workplace by displaying posters and/or distributing leaflets.

These options are flexible and can be altered to suit your needs.
