Police recruit for special constables

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is looking for a few good volunteer police officers.

The RCIPS Neighborhood Policing Department will be in Prospect Friday morning, seeking to sign up anyone who might be interested in becoming a special constable with the service.
Recruiters will be near the McRuss Grocery Store on Marina Drive between 7 a.m. and noon Friday.

Special constables are volunteer police officers who have the full enforcement powers of a paid police constable and assist the RCIPS “regulars” with everything from record keeping to community outreach and even some patrol duties.

Friday’s event is not the only recruitment expected to be carried out for the special constables unit, and times for other recruitment efforts will be announced, police said.

All Caymanians, permanent residents and work permit holders who have lived in Cayman for not less than six months and not more than five years may apply to be special constables. Applicants also must be at least age 18 and under age 50.
