160 new officers to join Lincolnshire Police

There will be an increased police presence on the streets of Lincolnshire over the next three years, as up to 160 new officers are expected to join.

The force is increasing officer numbers as part of the Government’s national uplift programme.

This is the first employment drive undertaken by the force in several years.

A total of 160 new recruits will join.

79 have joined already.

The application window will open again in October, according to Lincolnshire Police.

Several other job opportunities are also being advertised by the force.

Det Pete Grayson said:

“One of our big aims is increasing diversity.

“I’m not a big fan of setting targets because I think there’s always a risk of trying to set a percentage figure and then when you reach that then you feel like your work is done.

“And that is not the case. One of our ambitions is to broadly increase diversity and make us a more reflective work force of our community.”
