If you’re looking for a job that challenges you mentally and physically, joining the police could be for you. Understanding why people behave as they do as well as being able to react quickly and think on your feet is a core part of the job. There are few other jobs like it.

Police forces seek to encourage applicants that represent their local communities and applicants from all backgrounds and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply. The minimum age to apply is 18, and there is no upper age limit.

Do you have the following skills?

  • Good communication skills
