Employer Supported Policing (ESP) is an innovative partnership between the Police Service, Employers, their Employees and the Community, all working together to increase public safety and confidence in communities.
The ESP programme involves employers supporting their employees to become Special Constables (volunteer police officers) or to support employees who are already Special Constables, by giving an employee paid time off in order to train and undertake some of their volunteer policing duties.
Employee volunteering is a win-win situation; the experience builds skills and motivates employees - skills and unique qualities which are transferable back into your business – plus your organisation will be doing something really worthwhile by helping to meet community needs.
There are currently 122 companies who give additional paid leave to Special Constables, ranging from two days per year up to as much as 18 days per year.
You can choose an option that meets the needs of your organisation. If you are interested in hearing more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
