The job isn’t just about enforcement, you need to be able to build quality relationships and be the reassuring and caring face that every victim and witness needs. It's key that you are prepared for the unexpected but you also need to be able to remain calm under pressure. Dealing with the range of different situations means it can be tough at times but that's also what makes it exciting, and for every tough moment there are far more rewarding ones.

Join our team as a police officer and become part of the policing family. You'll receive a starting salary of £26,158 (this includes a £2500 south east allowance). Your salary will increase in yearly increments up to £43,630 within seven years.
