We have you covered - view what benefits and support we can offer you
In 2014, we were the first Special Constabulary to win the Queens Award for voluntary service – a collective MBE. We have the support of the Chief Constable Mr Pughsley and our Police and Crime Commissioner Mr Matthew Scott, who value the work that we undertake.
You will be valued and provided first class training – you can gain a wealth of knowledge, transferable skills, increase your confidence and make lots of friends along the way.
You will also be able to access a range of discounts with our Kent Police Recreational Association (KPRA) – including access to our gyms.
As a special constable you may be exposed to some traumatic sights, but we have you covered. We have a range of welfare and counselling options available to you from our occupational health team.
You will also have access to our staff support groups including:
If you are unable to volunteer due to sickness, this is not a problem. We will provide support and guidance as needed.
In the event of injuries, you are covered for compensation.
You can apply for criminal injuries compensation for injuries received on duty in the same way as our regular police officers.
The Special Constables Regulations provide for the refund of a maximum of 28 weeks loss of income by a special constable as a result of an injury on duty, subject to a maximum of a regular constable's pay over the same period.
You may also be entitled to claim for loss of earnings through injury on duty not caused by a criminal act. A claim for loss of wages in the form of temporary total disablement (from usual gainful employment) can be submitted to us if an injury is incurred on duty as a special constable. This is mainly funded from a corporately arranged insurance, with policy benefits of £500 per week payable for 28 weeks.
