Ulster Special Constabulary

Ulster Special Constabulary

L'Ulster Special Constabulary (USC, parfois appelé B-Specials ou B-Men, français : Police spéciale d'Ulster) est une force auxiliaire armée de police nord-irlandaise. Fondée en 1920, elle est constituée exclusivement de protestants. Son effectif est composé au départ de 16 000 volontaires, souvent d'anciens membres des Ulster Volunteers[1]. L'USC est dissoute en 1970 et remplacée par l'Ulster Defence Regiment, dépendant de l'armée britannique.
