Are you ready to stand up to one of the most rewarding and fulfilling jobs you could do?

We are recruiting nearly 160 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.

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.

Are you ready for a varied job? A job that is as much about supporting victims, providing reassurance and building relationships as it is about flashing lights and handcuffing offenders.

We are particularly keen to increase the number of women officers and officers from black and minority ethnic communities so that we can truly reflect the communities that we serve in Leicestershire.

Chief Constable Simon Cole said:

“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.”

If you're ready, you must be aged 18-57 years and hold a full valid UK driving licence. You will need to register your details on our website.
