NPIA / SC Changes in Dyfed-Powys

Recommended Posts

Original Source:

http://npia.police.uk/en/13093.htm#Wales

Dyfed Powys Police would be the first to admit that previously, despite a lot of good work being carried out locally, there was a lack of force vision, structure and corporacy in regard to the Special Constabulary (SC). However, the commitment that this Force has demonstrated to their SC during last 6 months has resulted in significant developments and improvements.

A new Force infrastructure was introduced and members of this team meet regularly to take forward the development of the SC and are currently delivering effective road shows across the Force area to reengage with their SC, inform them of the good work being carried out and taking onboard feedback from their officers.

The Force has embraced the recommendations of the National Strategy and have committed to introducing the National Recruitment Standards, Initial Learning for Special Constables and they have developed new procedures which will facilitate the collation of duty hours for the first time in this force and as a result will now be able to complete the national performance management Balanced Scorecard.

Work has recently been completed to reintroduce a SC rank structure and the profile of the SC has been significantly raised with the launch of an internal SC page on the Intranet, a commitment to dedicated space in their internal publications and regular articles being published in the local press. They continue to actively recruit and are utilising Employer Supported Policing (ESP) to assist following their commitment to the introduction ESP in force.

This Force has achieved a remarkable amount of excellent work in a very short space of time and are committed to continue this work to improve the motivation, retention and effectiveness of their Special Constabulary.

As the article above says, there are changes happening in Dyfed-powys' special constabulary, which include a re-introduced rank structure, Employer supported policing (with various levels), and many more changes which should improve our special constabulary. Also This should make the SC of DPP more professional and organised.

There have been four roadshows over the past month or so, one in each division.

The future looks good! :)

Good news indeed.

Read that article in work the other day, good to have some form of recognition.

Just hope we can carry it on.

Shall be trying my hand when it comes to the rank structure in any case.

Aye it is great news, and I to really hope the good work continues.

I am looking at the rank structure and thinking I may as well give it a go. Is the Intranet page up yet?

I believe we now follow the national recruitment standards, so yes it will be slightly different to the Recruitment process that I posted on this website.

Not that i've come across as yet. It could be hidden anywhere on the intranet and not found for years, there's that many pages on there.

Any particular rank you like the look of?

Well depending on how many there will be per section... special sergeant, or special inspector. Probably sergeant though,

Well I have just done days one and two of the 'new' specials course. Should be interesting.

For general information the course runs over six months and includes four fitness tests and at least two exams with a final written exam at the end.
