They all received a certificate from Superintendent Mark Newcombe.
Supt Newcombe said: "These people do an incredible job and make a difference to policing and also to communities.
"The time they spend volunteering helps to keep residents and visitors to Leicester safe.
"What we have to remember is that these people don't have to help us, but they choose to.
"They make the decision to offer us their spare time because they care about our communities and want to help us in any way they can, and that is nothing short of amazing."
Special constable Andrew Luke volunteered 1,391 hours.
He said: "Being a special constable is my contribution to society and I enjoy doing it.
"I enjoy meeting the public and helping them with their problems."
