Volunteering opportunities for former Essex Police employees
Main article content
You will be aware that the country now finds itself in an unprecedented position in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Whilst no one knows how long we will have to respond to this situation, we do know that many former Officers and Staff would like to be involved in helping protect and serve the county at this time.
Our Essex Police officers Fit the Bill by helping people, keeping people safe and catching criminals, and the contribution and dedication towards achieving these aims will be as strong today as it was when they first joined our family.
The return and retention of officers and staff with valuable skills and experience will help to increase Essex Police’s resilience and allow us to be even more flexible in providing the best service we can to the county during this unprecedented time, as the country responds to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
We know that many of our former Police officers and Police staff will want to come back and help protect and serve Essex. We anticipate that there will soon be many volunteer police support opportunities available for all former Police constables, Special constables or Staff that have left or retired within the last five years and would like to return, either on a full or part-time basis.
Those that would like to return will need to be available to travel.
We would love to hear from you so please do get in touch via the links below.
Volunteer support roles
We anticipate that there will soon be volunteer opportunities available. There are many support roles that would help to relieve pressure on officers and other staff.

Joining our Specials Constabulary
Former Police officers and Special officers could be sworn in as a Special Constable, all we would ask is that you commit to a minimum of 16 hours frontline policing and 2 hours training per month to enable us to plan effectively at this challenging time. We are pleased to confirm we are currently receiving high numbers of enquiries but are always keen to receive expressions of interest.
