Recruiting now



Policing is a career like no other. Our police officers, police staff and volunteers show courage, teamwork and compassion on a daily basis to make a real difference to people's lives. You'll be doing this at a time when the force is dealing with new and emerging types of crime, such as cybercrime, as well as helping victims of high-harm offences like rape and domestic abuse.

People become police staff for all kinds of reasons. Some like the flexibility and job security that we can offer. Some are professionals who want to leave behind the commercial world and do something that makes a difference. Others join in operational roles with a view to gaining the extra skills and experience they need to pursue a career as a police officer.

We look for all kinds of skills, because we know it takes all kinds of people to protect the public. Problem solving, compassion, resilience, respect, courage and teamwork. These are the qualities we are looking for, and if you think you might have the skills to serve get in touch or sign up for our job alerts.
