Be the Police Officer you have always wanted to be

We are currently recruiting Police Constable rejoiners.

Variety, Challenge, Opportunity.  You'll find everything you're looking for and more in Surrey.

As a successful Police Constable, you will find a refreshing variety of work at Surrey Police.  It's a chance to be really involved in your neighbourhood responding to, preventing and investigating crime - with rewards better than you think.

The opportunities and variety in our county are numerous.  Surrey's close proximity to London means we face the capital's challenges as well as supporting rural communities in beautiful countryside.







The Role

Surrey is a great place to work.  It's easier to get specialist advice, network and to make it known when you want to gain experience and progress.

You can be the difference.  Inclusivity is important to Surrey Police which is why we are looking for talented individuals to reflect the communities we serve.  So whatever your background, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation, we welcome you, and your application.

There's a wide range of places to live within the county, both urban and rural, plus excellent connections to London and the countryside.

Diversity Statement

We are only as good as our people. It’s really important to us that our officers and staff can be themselves in the workplace. And we believe that as an organisation we’ll benefit from the variety of thinking, approach and skills that diversity can bring; all of which helps us to deliver a better policing service.

We have worked really hard to create a safe, open and inclusive culture. We have a range of staff networking groups to provide specific support and advice and we are also proud to be a member of Stonewall and Disability Confident, and to be aligned with the Armed Forces Covenant and the HeForShe movement.

We value the differences that people bring from all backgrounds and communities so, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, disability, social status or religious beliefs, we would love to hear from you.
