Hampshire Constabulary is one of the region's largest employers. A third of our employees fulfil staff roles, supporting our frontline officers.
Hampshire Constabulary is committed to the aim of creating a diverse police service, which reflects the community it serves. In doing so we welcome applicants from multi-cultural communities, applicants with disabilities and applicants from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.
With no two days the same, this is a role that is diverse, challenging, often demanding, but ultimately very rewarding. Police officers make a real difference to local communities by reducing anti-social behaviour and dealing with crime and disorder. With excellent training and development opportunities, becoming a police officer is a career like no other.
Policing in Hampshire offers the opportunity for experienced officers to work in a diverse area of the country. Our 1,600 square miles include major towns and cities, large rural areas, coastlines and ports which offer exciting new challenges for officers seeking a new challenge.
Police Staff provide vital support to the provision of our service. There are literally hundreds of different roles filled by Police Staff. Our jobs are as diverse as our community, ranging from data inputters to crime scene investigators. The sheer scope of careers within our force is immense.
Special Constables undertake a whole range of duties, supporting the regular force in policing Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Some crew our launches in the Solent, whilst others assist the Roads Policing Unit patrolling the highways and motorways across the region. Special Constables with us will start with our Response and Patrol teams responding to emergency calls across the County, or with Neighbourhood & Prevention teams helping to deal with matters at the heart of local communities.
Handling a range of 101 non-emergency and 999 calls that are as diverse as the community we serve, our Call Management opportunities in our Force Enquiry Centre and Force Control Room will see you at the front line of policing. This Police Staff role is one of the most varied and rewarding telephone-based customer service roles you're likely to find.
A role with variety, meaning and excitement - not to mention a great salary and benefits. PCSOs are committed to making the community safe, dealing with things that have a big impact on the quality of people's life. Patrolling the streets, being a visible police presence, building trust and confidence - the job satisfaction and variety is huge and you'll be playing a key part in reducing the fear of crime.
Hampshire Constabulary Volunteer Police Cadets are aged 13 to 17 years and have the opportunity to meet new people, develop leadership skills and engage with teams across the Constabulary. In addition to enhancing the lives of other young people, you'll have fun at the same time as gaining nationally recognised and accredited qualifications.
Can you spare some time to help local policing teams in your area? Our volunteers assist Police Officers, Special Constables, PCSOs and Police Staff in various capacities to enable us to focus on community priorities and visible policing.
