    This is taken from http://www.solgen.gov.ab.ca/special_...lt.aspx?id=921.

    What is a special constable and how can a person become one?

    A special constable is a peace officer appointed by Alberta's Solicitor General and Minister of Public Security, under the Police Act, to enforce specific provincial and federal legislation. There are about 3,000 special constables employed in Alberta. Employers must be authorized by Alberta Solicitor General and Public Security to employ special constables and traditionally include municipal governments, police services, provincial government departments, the SPCA and First Nations. The enforcement carried out by special constables is recognized as supplemental to, and not a replacement for, the police service.

    To be a special constable, you must be at least 18 years of age and either a Canadian citizen or a legal permanent resident. The Solicitor General and Minister of Public Security has the right to waive the citizenship requirement in the interest of improving law enforcement in Alberta.

    Special constables must be of good character with no indictable or summary offence convictions, unless they are eligible for a pardon for that offence. They must also be qualified to carry out the services required and capable of meeting the minimum training standards.

    To become a special constable, you must either be employed by an authorized employer or have a written agreement that you will be hired by that employer if you qualify for appointment.

    Application forms are usually supplied by an authorized employer, and sent to Alberta Solicitor General and Public Security when completed. When you apply to become a special constable, you must also submit a criminal record check as part of your application.

      How about your nearest RCMP Detachment?

      Our S/Csts are employed on our Provost Sections, which transfer persons in custody between Detachment cells and Provincial Courts, Provincial Correctional Centres and/or Federal Penitenitiaries.

      If you are talking about S/Cst that work for Municipalities doing By-Law Enforcement or Traffic Enforcement, I might be able to put you in touch with a buddy of mine.

      PM or eMail for more info.

            I like trying to be helpful. I don't know much about Alberta though and how their S/Cst system works. I'm a little bit more familiar with Saskatchewan because my dad was telling me that I should work for Sakatchewan Highways and Transportation as a highway traffic officer so I've been researching that stuff here.

              In Edmonton we have special constables for transit security, by law enforcement, park rangers, animal control. Any job openings can be found on the city's website www.edmonton.ca
              In addition many of our hospitals employ special constables, as well the parking enforcement unit is made up of special constables contracted through Paladin Security Services.
