The RCIPS wants to recruit some extraordinary people from within our communities to join the Special Constabulary.
Currently there are more than 80 Special Constables in the RCIPS and the Service is looking for new recruits to swell the ranks.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about what the volunteering role entails should head along to our recruitment event at Camana Bay on Saturday, 9 June 2012, between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm. The event will be held by the Observation Tower.
Many of the men and women who already serve as part of the Special Constabulary will be there to answer questions and discuss the opportunities available, as well as the challenges you could face, as part of the RCIPS Special Constabulary.
‘Specials’, as they are known, are expected to dedicate a minimum of 15 hours every month to the RCIPS. They work alongside regular officers on foot and mobile patrol duties. Posts are open to people from all walks of life. Applicants must be aged between 18 and 50 years, be physically fit and have no criminal convictions.
“Being a Special Constable is extremely rewarding, but anyone who is considering joining us needs to know that the selection process is robust and will be extremely challenging – both academically and physically,” said Commandant Chris Duggan. “We use the same selection criteria for Specials as we do for regular officers. That’s how important the role is!
“We are looking for committed and hardworking people who will throw themselves into the role and play their part in making a real and lasting difference to the Cayman Islands communities. So, if you think you have what it takes, we look forward to hearing from you, or meeting you, on 9 June.”
Application forms will be available at the event in Camana Bay on 9 June. They can also be found on the RCIPS website, at district police stations or by clicking here. The closing date for applications is 16 June.
Applicants who meet the selection criteria will be expected to pass a physical test, a written test and take part in an interview before their appointment.
The next training class for Special Constables will begin as quickly as possible following the completion of the recruitment process.
Anyone who can’t make it along to the event on Saturday should contact the Commandant of the RCIPS Special Constabulary, Chris Duggan, for further information on firstname.lastname@example.org .
