Police Officer Recruitment

As a police officer your job will be to reduce crime and the fear of crime, and promote confidence among local people that the police understand and are prepared to deal with the issues that matter most to them.

Policing will enable you to work in partnership with the public and other organisations and make a difference to the local community.

You will have a key role in supporting victims and witnesses and providing reassurance to individuals who have been subjected to crime and anti-social behaviour. Many people will look to you for guidance and protection from such experiences and to provide this effectively you will need to be able to see things from their perspective, tailoring your approach to address their particular needs and fears.


Please note due to the high level of applications received our PC Recruitment process is now closed for the foreseeable future - please keep checking this page for further updates.
