We are not currently recruiting for Police Officers.  

This page will be updated regularly to ensure all information is up to date and you are given sufficient notice of any future recruitment plans.


Further important information

 Please note that all Hampshire Constabulary officers must hold a full manual driving licence before joining and must be prepared to serve anywhere within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Applicants should live in or near the borders of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and/or be able to demonstrate strong ties to the area.

All Hampshire Constabulary officers must wear personal protective equipment when on duty in the form of body armour. They must also maintain the same standards of fitness as when they join us as there are annual fitness tests for serving officers.

Police officers and staff are required at all times to act with the highest standards of honesty, integrity, respect and courtesy. To ensure that we recruit new officers and staff who are able to meet those standards, we will not only monitor applicants' performance as they progress through the recruitment process but also their language and behaviour when interacting with members of Hampshire Constabulary staff whether in person, in writing or by telephone. Please familiarise yourself with these standards by reading Police Officer Standards of Behaviour.

Should it be considered that a candidate's actions fall short of the highest standards of honesty, integrity, respect or courtesy it is likely that their application will be withdrawn from the recruitment process.

Hampshire Constabulary also has a comprehensive range of sports and social clubs, which are open to all employees, either police officers or police staff.

The Assistant Wellbeing Advisor is available to provide information and advice to working parents and carers on family care support and work-life balance initiatives and policies.

The 2010 Equality Act applies to all employers including police forces. Hampshire Constabulary welcomes applicants from prospective officers with a disability. We are committed to ensuring that all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a vacancy will be offered access to the selection process.
