Humberside Police have been proudly serving the people of Northern Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire since 1974.

The force covers a very diverse area that stretches from as far north as Bridlington, across to the Isle of Axholme and down to the outskirts of Grimsby where it changes to Lincolnshire Police.

The Humber area boasts some of England’s most attractive countryside and some truly vibrant towns, all with transport links to Leeds, Manchester, London and the South. 

Humberside Police officers are dedicated to working together to help create safe and strong communities, where people know how to protect themselves and are able to make informed decisions.

The Humberside Police force’s Plan on a Page sets out the key priorities for the organisation. Every individual, team, department and command is working towards this plan and is playing their own unique role in delivering one or more elements of the plan.

We have recruited 122 police officers across Yorkshire and The Humber to date.

Through our partnership with Humberside Police and neighbouring forces in the Yorkshire and The Humber region, we have recruited, trained and developed 122 graduates to become police officers on our national graduate programmes.

Police Now stood out as different. I felt that through a programme that was so in line with what I connected with; it was the right way to go into policing. I think what sets Police Now apart - and why it is important - is that it really embraces you as an individual. I can honestly say that. It gives you the opportunity to be yourself and then be a police officer.

Since completing the National Graduate Leadership Programme, I have transitioned into a detective role investigating serious and complex crime. Being a detective leaves a lasting impact on people’s lives and there is nothing more rewarding or important than that.
