Be the future of the force

While you focus on providing the public with outstanding support and protection, we’ll be focusing on making sure we give you an exceptional development experience. You will have opportunities across different areas of policing, such as response, neighbourhoods and investigation, while at the same time receive support for your own progression and wellbeing.

There are different stages of the recruitment process and therefore it is important you understand what this entails, how long you have to complete each stage and when you will be informed if you have been successful to progress to the next stage. Our initial communications with you will be via email.  If you do not find the answer to your question within this document, then you can email our dedicated recruitment team on
