Initial training for the volunteers inducted into the Constabulary was undertaken by officers seconded from the the 12th and 22nd Kalisa Rrumëli Field Battalions at Vesüha during the initial formation period (1690 AN1691 AN) with a training section established to assume responsibility for the basic training of recruits thereafter.

In-house training was supplemented after 1700 AN by dispatching cadets selected from the children of the Southern District to Tiegang so as to study at the School of the High Inquisitor of Tiegang. Cadets were selected at the age of seven by officers of the Southern District Assistance Board from amongst the orphans being dispatched from the Southern District to serve as apprentices to the Eastern Ulus of the Silver Yak Horde in Lontinien. Of the twelve boys sent in 1700 AN only two, by dint of having falsified papers giving their age as being nine years old, were accepted by the School with the remaining ten being obliged to serve as pot boys in the Blackfriars' Redux and receive a measure of schooling from the staff Saint Richard's Asylum.

Recruits for the Special Auxiliary Constabulary were obliged to furnish their own mounts and riding gear, with remounts and repairs to equipment being a claimable expense.


The uniform of an officer in the Hurmu Constabulary initially comprised of a beaver-fur cap, a navy blue waxed-denim single-breasted tunic worn over a white shirt, black woollen trousers, and brown leather riding boots. A black leather shearling lambskin jacket could be worn by officers of the rank of County Inspector 3rd Class, whilst a woollen greatcoat, dyed navy blue, was issued to all ranks to be worn in inclement weather.

By 1714 AN, following the rapid growth of the force over the previous twenty years, a degree of variability had seeped into the once standard uniform. Peaked forage caps had begun to be accepted as head gear, and non-standard tunics and trousers, influenced by regional availability, had begun to appear. And there had been instances where the mandated beaver pelts, used for lining headwear and garments, had been replaced by the fur of sub-boreal foxes.
