There’s still time to become one of around 200 police officers being recruited in Preston and Lancashire.Advertisement
Lancashire Police is continuing its recruitment drive for front-line officers.
Deputy chief constable Sunia Gamblin said: “It’s important we attract the right people from different backgrounds to help us keep people safe by responding to, meeting the needs of and understanding all cultures and lifestyles within Lancashire.
“Policing is highly rewarding. The rapid development of technology is changing the face of crime. This career presents opportunities to develop in core services such as response, local policing and investigation with pathways that lead into specialisms such as CID, firearms, roads policing, dog handler and much more.”
The application process is followed by training throughout 2018 and 2019.

Lancashire police and crime commissioner Clive Grunshaw said: “This is an important investment in Lancashire Police and into front line policing across the county.
“The public need to know that they are being policed by officers who understand and relate to them. We want to see applications from people of all backgrounds and it is a chance to recruit officers from under-represented communities.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to work for one of the best police forces in the country and play a key role in helping to keep the people of Lancashire safe.”
Applicants can apply online at the Lancashire Police website and the deadline is Friday (19 January).
