Police recruitment drive attracts 1,400
More than 1,400 people have said they are interested in becoming police officers in Watford and the surrounding areas.
And there is still time to apply.
Hertfordshire Constabulary launched a new recruitment drive last month seeking individuals with passion and drive to join up as police officers, and has been “thrilled” with the response.
“It is clear that job seekers out there appreciate what a unique and rewarding job it is to be a police officer and want to make a real impact in their local community,” said Chief Constable Charlie Hall.
“We are delighted that more than 1,400 individuals have registered their interest in joining our police force. As a police officer you play a vital role in keeping people safe, reducing crime and catching criminals. Victims and witnesses of crime look to you for support during the worst times of their life.”
By joining Hertfordshire Constabulary, you will get to experience the challenges of policing both rural and urban communities.
You will receive first-class training and begin your policing service on the frontline responding to 101 and 999 calls.
Chief Constable Hall added: “The strength of our constabulary undoubtedly lies in its people and I am extremely proud of the work that our officers undertake every day. We are particularly reaching out to our diverse communities and under-represented groups, to say please come forward, we want you to apply as we want our workforce to reflect the communities we serve and protect.”
Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd said: “Hertfordshire Constabulary is one of the highest regarded forces in the country by its residents, and respected nationally as a professional and progressive service. It is great to see so many people interested in joining.”
