SCD Specials

Could you volunteer your time to help tackle and solve serious crime in Essex?

We’re launching two new and exciting roles within our Special Constabulary where you can volunteer your time to solve serious crimes including murders, stranger rapes and fraud and corruption cases.

You’ll undergo the same training course that all Special Constables complete and will continue your training alongside detectives in our Major Crime Unit and our Serious Economic Crime Unit with our Serious Crime Directorate.
We’re on the lookout for driven, organised and self-motivated individuals who can volunteer for a minimum of 16 hours a month as Special Constables in a volunteer detective type role alongside serving detectives.

There are two teams to choose from that each require a different set of skills and experiences.
