Police Officer



People choose to become a police officer for many reasons. Some want to improve struggling communities, some want to help those in a moment of need, and others have never wanted to do anything else. 

What's Life Like as a Police Constable?

All new police constables at Lancashire Police spend their first two years working on emergency response. You'll find yourself providing a police presence in town centres on a Friday night, responding to domestic violence incidents, and helping people who are going through a mental health crisis.

It's a 24/7 service.

That means you'll be providing support around the clock including weekends and during the holidays. 

It's fast paced.

Many police officers thrive off the fast-paced business of responding to emergencies and stay in the front line for many years. Others find a different area that interests them and go on to specialise. This could be working with victims of abuse, solving serious crimes, or working in an area like counter terrorism or cyber crime.

It's supported with training and defined career pathways. 

Whatever you choose, you’ll have a full training programme to get you started and defined career pathways to help you to meet your career goals.
