RCIPS launches recruitment drive for special constables

Today, August 25th 2017, the RCIPS is putting out a call for all those interested in a very special and rewarding type of volunteering.

The Service is launching a recruitment drive to bolster the ranks of the RCIPS Special Constabulary, a group of dedicated volunteer police officers who have the full powers of a regular police constable and regularly assist the RCIPS in carrying out its policing and outreach within the communities of the Cayman Islands. New recruits to the Special Constabulary receive intense and ongoing training to enable them to carry out regular police duties and, once graduated, can be assigned to do anything from traffic enforcement, to 9-1-1 emergency call response, to proactive patrolling and much more. Those who join the constabulary are strictly required to commit to a minimum of fifteen hours of work per month.

“This is a very challenging but highly rewarding and interesting way to serve the community,” said Kurt Walton, Deputy Commissioner of Police “and the work that Specials do strengthens public safety and security in our country. We are very grateful for the commitment and enthusiasm they bring to policing.”

“Being a Special Constable is one of the more impactful and rewarding ways to volunteer your valuable time,” said Chris Duggan, Commandant of the RCIPS Special Constabulary, “while learning so much about public safety and the community. Policing is a very challenging but fascinating endeavour, and by volunteering as a Special Constable your impact and influence on the community and the lives of so many will be significant.

I look forward to welcoming a full complement of new recruits to our next training programme starting in early October.”

Next Saturday, September 2, Special Constables will have a booth at Camana Bay from 10AM-4PM during which time they can speak with interested individuals about their experiences and hand out applications. Special Constables will also be making media appearances to answer questions and talk about their own fascinating and rewarding experiences on the job.

Those interested in applying to become a Special Constable with the RCIPS should download the application form from the RCIPS webpage at www.rcips.ky and contact the Special Constabulary directly at [email protected] to get more information.

The recruitment drive for new Special Constables is will last until 5:00pm on Friday, 15 September, which is the deadline for applying. All applications should be printed out, signed, and brought to the RCIPS Training and Development Unit at Governor’s Square during regular business hours (Ph. 946-2012).
