Being a police officer is an exciting and rewarding role and while there is no monetary gain to be had by being a special, there are plenty of less tangible benefits that go hand in hand with improving the safety and security of your community. For example:

  • You will enjoy what you do!
  • You will experience new challenges every time you go on patrol
  • Through meeting these challenges you acquire self confidence and a sense of achievement
  • You form lasting friendships
  • You learn more about yourself, life and human nature than most people will ever see
  • You will develop transferable skills such as problem solving, communication, team working and patience
