Thirty-eight new recruits are to be sworn into their new roles at an attestation ceremony.
The ceremony, to take place at Staffordshire Police Headquarters on Wednesday (12 January), will see the new recruits read their attestation pledge and receive their policing powers.
The latest intake includes seven transferee officers from other forces, ten Detective Constable Degree Holder Entry Programme student officers (DCDHEP) and 21 Degree Holder Entry Programme officer (DHEP).
The new recruits will get on-the-job training and education through a programme delivered by the force and Staffordshire University. They will work towards a degree in professional policing practice.
After attending practical and theory-based teaching sessions and supported online learning, the new officers will join teams across the county to carry on their training.
Ongoing assessments and reviews will take place to ensure officers continue to learn and make progress. Support will also be provided by a tutor at the university and their own personal police tutor whilst on deployments.
Chief Constable, Chris Noble said: “The attestation is an important occasion for officers and it will be an honour to welcome them to the force. I wish them all the very best for their future careers with Staffordshire Police.
“This designated route into policing is there to help officers with the skills they need to tackle issues, such as prevention, early intervention and problem-solving skills, and serve communities to the best of their abilities.
“It will be a privilege to be part of the attestation ceremony and it’s an honour to be Staffordshire Police’s new Chief Constable.
“I will be working hard alongside colleagues to build on the strong foundations set by previous leaders to deliver a police service which everyone in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent can be proud of.”
