Volunteer current vacancies buttonThe Force covers an area of 2,500 square kilometres with a population of almost one million. We currently employ more than 2000 police officers, almost 2000 police staff and over 500 volunteers.

We need all kinds of people with all kinds of skills to take on a wide range of roles that are available within a modern police force - from community policing to CID work, from taking phone calls to taking fingerprints.

A career with Leicestershire Police can be rewarding and will be built on your particular strengths.

As a police officer, you'll be promoted purely on ability and merit. You will be continually developing new skills and a deeper knowledge. There will also be opportunities for secondment or attachment to various departments including CID, the Child Protection Unit, East Midlands Airport and the Dogs section.

In addition to our highly competitive pay scales, further benefits such as a childcare voucher scheme, the ability to take a career break and part-time working are also available.

You'll also enjoy working in an attractive, accessible, culturally vibrant and forward-looking county.

Note: The Force is currently implementing the Hay Group Job Evaluation scheme and therefore the advertised grade may be subject to change. This is likely to be completed during this year and if there are any changes to the rate of pay they will take effect from this date.

The force has absence criteria of no more than 9 working days and/or more than 3 separate occasions of sickness absence in the previous 12 months.
