A National Partnership Scheme

between Employers and Hampshire Constabulary


Employer Supported Policing

Originated as ‘Shopwatch’ in Camden

  • Employers recognised the need for local Policing needs to be met.
  • Employer Supported Special Constables could be ‘guaranteed’ to be deployed locally.
  • Residual benefits of staff development through volunteering.

How does ESP work?

Businesses decide how much support they can afford to give their employees in their work as Specials.

Moral Support

Recruiting talks/events


Use of training facilities

Paid Time Off

Discretionary/Emergency Leave

Who Benefits?


  • Confident, customer focused and well motivated staff who feel valued by their employer.
  • Positive evidence of commitment to corporate social responsibility, which can be marketed.
  • Contribution to reducing crime and the fear of crime in the vicinity of the business. For retailers, this certainly positively affects the shopping experience.

The Public

  • Special Constables are local people providing a policing service to the communities in which they live and work.
  • The reassurance that local voluntary police officers are supporting the regular Police to protect their neighbourhood is invaluable in improving satisfaction and confidence.

So, how do I start?

  • Employees who are interested in becoming a Special apply in the normal way. Recruitment events will be arranged.
how much commitment do i need to make
How Much Commitment Do I Need to Make?

Well, first of all, let’s ask a different question:

Why do you want to engage with ESP in the first place?

What do you, as an employer want to get out of ESP?

How much support are you empowered to provide?

How much support will the business bear?

can i call on an esp supported special directly
Can I Call on an ESP Supported Special Directly?
  • No. In the sense that you can’t call them on their mobile phone!
  • When Police assistance is required, you must still call the Police Control Room.
  • However, because ESP Specials are deployed locally, the Control Room will send the nearest available local unit …… which will be the Special!
the c ommunity s afety accreditation s cheme csas
The Community Safety Accreditation Scheme(CSAS)


CSAS is made possible through the Police Reform Act 2002 and allows Public and private sector organisations to apply to the Chief Constable for accreditation.

43 accredited powers are available to help them become more effective in their role and contribute to community safety and security and combat crime and disorder, public

nuisance and other forms of anti-social behaviour.


Raised organisational profile.

It will provide additional powers with the potential to address certain issues on the spot without police involvement.

Improved working relationships between the police & accredited persons.
