Members of the public who want to make a difference in local communities are being asked if they could be a police officer, as Cleveland Police opens recruitment for police constables on 27th January.
A career as a constable is challenging but offers an excellent opportunity for
those who want to become an integral part of communities, protect the public and prevent and detect crime.
The Force will close the applications process after four weeks or after 400 applications have been received.
The Force will also be recruiting for special constables and will close recruitment when 200 applications have been received, or after four weeks.
A web chat will be hosted between 6pm and 7pm on Thursday 14th January where members of the public can ask questions about any elements of the recruitment process.
Two events will be held for prospective candidates at Teesside University Centuria Building on Tuesday 19th January between 6pm and 8pm and on Thursday 21st January between 10am and 12pm.
Those wishing to attend can sign up via Eventbrite, the link to which is available on the Cleveland Police website and on the Cleveland Police Facebook and Twitter pages.
Temporary Chief Constable, Iain Spittal, said: “We are delighted to be offering people the opportunity to apply for the position of police constable and special constable again this year. We re-started our recruitment campaign in May
2014 following a five-year freeze and since then we have recruited 47 Police Constables and 17 Special Constables as well as 16 transferees from other forces.
“A career in policing is challenging, however, it provides first class training and will present opportunities for progression into specialist policing roles. It is
an excellent opportunity. The ideal candidates will be individuals who are honest, hardworking, enthusiastic and truly committed to making a genuine difference for our communities.
“We are looking to recruit the best and if you believe you have what it takes to be part of our team then we would like to hear from you. The recruitment process includes the national Police Officer competency based application form, assessment centre for shortlisted candidates and a formal in force interview. Once this is completed candidates will progress to the recruitment
phase which includes fitness testing, medical, vetting, references and financial checks.”
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger said: “The process of becoming a police officer or a special constable is challenging and demanding but we are looking for individuals who can meet the national standard, deliver exceptional service and keep our communities safe. In
return we offer a rewarding career full of interesting and new experiences.”
Applications can only be accepted by online submission.
