What is Employer Supported Policing?
It is a partnership benefitting employers, their staff and the police service by releasing Special Constables to volunteer in the communities they serve.
How can my organisation be involved?
We are asking organisations to consider becoming Employer Supported Policing partners. Under this partnership, staff interested in applying to be Special Constables or already operating as Special Constables will be given paid time off to undertake their volunteer police duties and/or training.
In addition, by working in partnership with Police Scotland employers can benefit from having their SPC staff trained for free. Volunteering as a Special Constable will allow staff to build upon their personal and professional development, becoming skilled in:
- Team working
- Problem solving
Police Scotland are currently working in partnership with a number of employers and work is continuing to develop links with employers and expand ESP across the Force. To find out if your employer is an ESP partner or for more information on the benefits to employers, staff, police and local communities please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
