Nottinghamshire Police in hunt for new recruits

Event being held later this month in Arnold to attract new recruits from across the borough

Nottinghamshire Police are hoping to attract new recruits from across the borough at an event being held in Arnold later this month. 

The Force today launched its latest round of recruitment for police constables, with anyone interested encouraged to apply before midnight on Friday, September 22.

The launch comes after last month’s news that the force will be recruiting a total of 200 officers in 2017/18 and has ambitions to recruit even more in 2018/19.

For those across the borough wanting to learn more, a recruitment seminar is being held at the police’s headquarters at Sherwood Lodge in Arnold on Saturday, September 9 between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping said: “I know that people want to see more police officers and PCSOs on their streets and neighbourhoods.

“They want to see a visible, easily accessible police presence in their communities. I can understand that, which is why I have been working hard with the force to secure enough sustainable funding for an increase in officer numbers.

Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable, Craig Guildford said: “We’ve been recruiting for a range of roles, from volunteer Special Constables to front-line regular officers, and we look forward to that recruitment continuing over the months to come.

“We want to recruit talented people with a diverse range of skills and experience who are committed to making a difference to the communities that we serve.

“Recruiting from the widest pool of people will mean we recruit individuals who can speak other languages, understand other cultures and lifestyles and are willing to use those skills to the benefit of the community and the organisation. We would therefore encourage and welcome applications from under-represented groups who will help us enhance our service offer even further to the people of Nottinghamshire.

“As you can see from the photos taken at our training school, we have recruited heavily already in 2017 with officers, PCSOs, transferees of officers and PIOs all arriving, but we still want more people to apply. It’s a great time to be joining Nottinghamshire Police.”
