How To Apply To Become A Police Constable


Would You Like to Join Our Next Intake?

We recruit police officers in groups so that new entrants can train together and gain the best start.

Applications are closed at the moment. Keep an eye on these pages and on Twitter, Facebook and In the Know to find out when you can complete the application form.

You can check our vacancies board and set up job alerts here.

Do you know there are two ways to apply?

If you have a degree already (in any subject) you can apply to join on our police constable degree holder entry programme. If you're ready to work towards a degree while working as a police officer look at our police constable degree apprentice programme.

You can only apply for one route. Find out more here.

It takes time to select the applicants with the best potential. Your application will go through several stages over the course of 6 months.
