Continuing what senior officers desribe as its biggest recruitment drive in living memory, the force has opened up a new wave of applications.
Chief Constable Stephen Watson QPM said: “We are now actively recruiting 1,400 officers over the next three years. This is an exciting time for SYP and it could be for you too. Joining the force will mean taking on a challenge that could change your life and the lives of those whom you will be working to protect.
“A career in policing presents opportunities for fulfilment like no other. It is not an everyday office job. Your team will comprise people who routinely do what most others couldn’t or wouldn’t. You will be making a difference in protecting your community, bringing criminals to justice and by providing worthwhile support to people who might be experiencing great trauma.
“Our force covers everything from rural and isolated communities through to the most complex inner city operating environments..”
There are now three new entry routes as part of the Policing Education Qualifications Framework – one that provides apprenticeships, another for existing degree holders or an option for those who want to study first. The opportunity to apply runs for four weeks, closing at midnight on September 27.
