Meet some of our Transferees

"If you are looking to do well in your career then you will benefit from the supportive culture here at Lancashire Police"

"I have been at Lancashire Police now for nearly 12 months and am very happy here.  I worked for another force for 16 years and felt like I wanted to have the opportunity for better promotion prospects.  As a bonus, I now have a 10 minute commute into work which has had a massive impact on my work / life balance.

"I initially transferred to Lancashire Police as a DC and very early on was recognised for my skills and experience and gained a new role as a Temporary DS looking after Safeguarding in my Division.  I am hoping to successfully pass through Promotion Boards and achieve my role on a permanent basis.

"One thing that has really stood out for me is the level of support I have received from day one.  Within the first week the Chief Constable, Andy Rhodes, attended part of the Transferee training course which was really unexpected and in my new division the Superintendent scheduled a meet and greet.  I feel that more time is invested in people here and felt instantly connected with my new colleagues.

"For those considering transferring from another force, I would say that if you want to push yourself and do well in your career then you will benefit from the supportive culture here at Lancashire Police."

Temporary Detective Sergeant Craig Charnock

"Transferring to Lancashire Police has allowed me to fall back in love with policing"

“I transferred to Lancashire Police as a Detective in CID having worked for Surrey Police for over 19 years in numerous Detective roles for the last 15 of those years. 

“Upon joining Lancashire I have felt very welcomed by everyone who works here. Within the first few days I had a meeting with my new SMT which gave me the opportunity to meet my peers and colleagues which was helpful.  My new team at CID is great, they all work so hard and along with my supervisors and management, they have offered lots of support to get me settled into the role, which can get very hectic at times”

“Genuinely, it’s mainly the people at Lancashire Police that make this a great place to work. I had begun to feel as if I was losing my love for police work, but transferring to Lancashire Police has allowed me to fall back in love with policing.”

“Before the transferee interview I did plenty of research about Lancashire Police values and the Chief Constable’s vision which I definitely think helped, so if I could offer one piece of advice it would be to do your research before the interview.”

“Although I have had a varied career working to date I still learn everyday so I would like to steer my career towards a training role, supporting other Officers and Detectives to excel in their careers when I draw towards the end of mine.”

"I would definitely recommend transferring to Lancashire Police, I am very happy to have made the move here"

"I joined Lancashire Police in May 2019 after working for another regional force for 27 years and am Divisional Response Inspector based in Lancaster.  I was looking for a better work life balance and wanted to spend more time with my family and this has really paid off for me both in time and money – I now save over £200 per month in fuel costs due to my shorter commute to work and can even cycle into work now which is great.

"I have been very impressed with how my move to Lancashire Police has been managed.  I had the opportunity to express an interest in which shift pattern would fit in with my family commitments which was great.

"Sometimes you don’t realise you need a change until you make one.  The leadership style at Lancashire Police makes me feel much more supported when making decisions which makes a refreshing change from my previous force.

"If you are considering transferring to another force I would definitely recommend transferring to Lancashire Police, I am very happy to have made the move here."

"I would definitely recommend transferring to Lancashire Police, I am very happy to have made the move here"

“I transferred to Lancashire Police due to re-locating to the area with my family after working at West Mercia Police for over 12 years. I did have a number of options when choosing a force to transfer to but decided that Lancashire Police was the one for me, the great transport links to my new home and especially the lure of the Mounted Branch.

“From day one at Lancashire I have felt very well looked after. The senior officers are very friendly and made an effort to introduce themselves which was great.  There is an authentic interest in the people that work here and staff wellbeing is paramount.  The force was recently place 12th in the Top 50 Inclusive Companies Awards and was the highest place force out of the entries which is great.  I can see why Lancashire Police have achieved this award as inclusivity here feels very natural and not forced.

“I have been encouraged to join the LGBT Staff association and have felt very welcomed, I have attended two Pride events representing the Police and thoroughly enjoyed them, with my peers genuinely interested in what I was doing.  I have also joined the Lancashire Police netball team and represented them in two matches so far.  This has opened up lots of opportunities to meet new people which has massively helped when re-locating to a new county.

“In the short time I have been here I have has the opportunity to complete the Family Liaison Officer (FLO) course and have been entered for my Sergeants exams which is fantastic.  My ultimate goal is to work in the Mounted Division, which would really be a career dream come true!”

Detective Constable Jade Mason
