Staffordshire Police set to recruit more than 100 new bobbies

 STAFFORDSHIRE Police are set to take on 110 new constables over the next year in a new recruiting policy.

The rookie bobbies will be required to study for a degree in between getting job experience.

Chief Constable Gareth Morgan said: “This is an important development to police recruitment and one hat recognises policing as the highly-skilled profession it is.

“I am looking for applicants from all corners of the county and from diverse backgrounds to join us so the force can be truly reflective of the communities it serves.”

Candidates who already have a degree will be able to make the transition to a Graduate Diploma in Policing.

Those without a degree can join and study towards the police constable degree apprenticeship (PCDA).

The starting salary for new constables is between £18,000 and £23,000 depending on their entry route, previous qualifications and/or recognised prior learning.
