We are looking for resilient individuals whose first instinct is to help others. Those with a strong sense of community, who are calm under pressure, with a natural ability to communicate with people from all walks of life.
We’re particularly keen to hear from people who may not have considered a career in policing before and are from an underrepresented group, including women and ethnic minority communities.
If you want to make a difference and give back to your community this could be the job for you.
Interested in applying? Don’t delay, places for applications are limited.
