National Standard Recruitment Process

West Yorkshire Police recruits Special Constables to a national standard using the National Specials Recruitment Assessment Process. The process requires candidates to be measured against specific core competencies relating to the role of a Special Constable.

What are these competencies?

The competencies are identified from the College of Policing’s Policing Professional Framework which lists the competencies for each role in the police service. Those specific to the Special Constabulary include;

  • Serving the public
  • Openness to change
  • Service delivery
  • Professionalism
  • Working with others
  • Decision making
