Our Police Officers are our face and voice in the community. They’re on the ground, speaking to victims, preventing crime and making a real difference. They come from different walks of life but are united by the same goal – to keep communities safe.
We’re looking for people who reflect the communities we serve, people who can bring diversity of experience, people who are willing to protect our streets. It’s not always easy, some days will be tougher than others, but the sense of pride makes it worth every second.
You won’t just be building better communities; you’ll be building a career that counts. From intelligence to armed policing, whatever your background, wherever you want to take your career, however you want to specialise, we’ll help you find your beat.

Our student officer entry programmes – which option is right for you?
We currently offer a range of different entry routes which you might be interested in, these are tailored depending on your experience and level of education.
All entry routes operate on a ‘earn as you learn’ basis which means that you will be a paid police constable from your first day of training, gaining on-the-job experience whilst studying for your qualification. The force will also pay your tuition fees, so for you that means no academic fees and no student loans.

You will be provided with student support processes such as coaching/mentoring, one to one meetings, development surgeries both within the classroom and work based phases of each programme to assist in your development
