An essential element of the Force is the Wiltshire Police Special Constabulary which has over 160 members of the public supporting the organisation in preventing and reducing crime whilst providing reassurance to their local communities.

 

The Special Constabulary’s Inspectors are dynamic, inspirational leaders whom are committed to driving the strategic business of the Special Constabulary.

These posts (3) are voluntary roles with a fixed five-year tenure at which point the roles may be advertised with the current holders being eligible to reapply; or the tenure of the current incumbents may be extended for a further period.

The post holders will be required to engage with other forces and the Home Office on a regular basis to maintain and share best practice.

 

All applicants should enclose a current CV and a document that in no more than 250 words expresses who they would meet the key competencies of this voluntary role.

 

The successful candidates (if not already a current Special Constable) will go through the basic Special Constable training programme and on successful completion of this will be appointed as an Acting Special Inspector. All those selected will be required to successfully complete the residential Special Constabulary Senior Leaders Course at which point they will be appointed as a Temporary Special Inspector and work towards substantive rank over a period of 12-months.

We'll obviously see, but a bit different from the concerns about direct entry for regulars, as there will be little operational difference between the S/Insp and SC: it's mostly in the management/strategy side that they'll do more.

Without a doubt, Direct entry to regular insp. is way more of a commitment and work, and you are responsible for a lot more people and work ect ect blah blah whatever else comes with it :P , as you say S/insp just manage people, i suppose somewhat still have a reasonable amount of responsibility, but they can always revert to sc or s/sgt if they fail at a certain point, like direct entry to regular insp so it's not all bad

 

 

I was actually looking at jobs within the Wiltershire police as well and saw the chief constables driver. The qualifications they want and only paying £19k i seriously doubt they'd get anybody, unless they're desperate for a/that job :P, Advanced driving/is unlikely, Add onto that a qualifed driving instructer...and convoy/defence driver..yeah I doubt it :P , A normal instructer for MOPs monday-friday 9-5 earns more, and thats before you're called out at 1am to deliver royalty to the loo at wiltshire palace.. (made up scenario) ;) Well i meet half the Reqs anyway ;)

Sounds ideal though if you're a recent police officer retiree though looking to get a bit of cash still in a less stressful role.
