The nature of our work means that we have to conduct a rigorous application process – which, of necessity, can also be quite lengthy. The process involves a variety of screening checks, as well as security and reference checks. This is an essential part of ensuring that we recruit the most able individuals and you are right for us, as well as ensuring that joining us is the right move for you.
There are a few questions you will need to answer before applying, to check that you are eligible to join. For example, Police Officers should be over 18 years old and either a British citizen, a member of the EC/EEA, or a Commonwealth citizen or foreign national who has lived, unrestricted, in the UK for the previous five years.
In this section of the website, you will find detailed information about how to apply and the checks we will make before you join.
