Detective Constable Yassin Desai
We are recruiting nearly 125 police officers over the next two years - could you be one of them?
It's a unique role with unique demands that are ever-changing. You need to be adaptable to change and ready to think on your feet.
Being a Police Officer means never knowing what's going to happen next. You'll be working long hours - typically 8, 10 or 12 hour shifts - you'll be in contact with the widest variety of people, and you'll be expected to act with integrity at all times - even when you're out of uniform.
At the same time, it's a role that can give you some of the best and proudest days of your life. From protecting the vulnerable and saving lives to just making your local community feel safer, it's exciting, diverse and vitally important.
In return, you will have the benefit of working for a creative, forward-thinking force that is dedicated to keeping Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland a safe place to live, work and visit.
We welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds and encourage anyone who has considered a career in policing to submit an application form. We are particularly keen to increase the number of women officers and officers from black and minority ethnic communities and candidates from the LGBT community, so that we can truly reflect the communities that we serve in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
“Protecting our communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is a privilege and demands a wide range of skills and competencies from our officers, staff and volunteers. It is vital that we recruit the right people into these PC roles, and equip them to deliver harm-reducing services that will keep our communities safe.
“If you want an opportunity that offers variety, excellent training and a chance to help people and have the capabilities that we need I’d encourage you to apply to join us and look forward to receiving your application.”
