Employer Supported Policing (ESP) is a simple but powerful partnership between employers and Cheshire Constabulary.

Special Constables are volunteer police officers, with full police powers. They provide an additional uniformed presence on the streets, reassuring the public, supporting crime reduction and help to make communities safer.

Organisations of any size are welcome to join ESP and there are a number of ways you can support the scheme, ranging from support to the recruitment of Special Constables through to agreed hours per month paid time off to support duties.
