A drive for new police

PUBLISHED: 12:00 11 February 2015


AVON and Somerset Constabulary is looking for up to 120 new police officers in its latest recruitment drive.

In this first stage, which is open until February 20, interested candidates are being asked to complete an online registration and eligibility check.

The next stage is an online assessment and application form.

There is no limit to the number of people who can apply.

Acting Chief Constable John Long said: “I look forward to welcoming new officers who can help us make a difference and support our ambition to make the communities of Avon and Somerset safe and feel safe. It’s important our workforce reflects the communities we serve to provide value and build trust. That’s why we’re actively encouraging people from all cultural, ethnic and religious background to consider a rewarding career in policing with us.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “Policing is a challenging and rewarding job and it is vital that the service reflects the communities it serves.

“Opportunities to recruit police officers over the next few years will be few and far between so I hope people will strongly consider this exciting opportunity now.”
