Durham Constabulary Recruitment

There has never been a better time to choose a career in the police.

The evolving world around us means there are more diverse opportunities to work in the police and protect your local community than ever before. Because of that, from 2020 trainee officers will be taken through fully-funded qualifications while they get to grips with the job they love, building the foundations for a long and successful career with a range of specialisms at their fingertips - and a great salary from the start.   

Durham Constabulary is the pride of the North East. Its unique make up of city, countryside and coast makes it a fantastic setting to work in, but it’s the reputation for excellence that makes it the best force in the country. When you become an officer with Durham Constabulary, you become part of a hard-working, supportive and family-friendly force with an excellent peer network and trusted working environment.  

To support its officers through the initial critical phase of their careers, Durham Constabulary has teamed up with experts at Northumbria University to offer two distinct training options that make a career in the police accessible to as many people as possible. Whether you entered the workforce after gaining school qualifications, went to college to pursue a trade or vocation, want to add a further specialism to your degree, or fancy a change of direction later in life, we will help you find the path that is best for you.  

Police Officer Recruitment for Durham Constabulary will open on Monday 25th March 2024 and will close on Sunday 14th April 2024.
