Staffordshire Police careers

Staffordshire Police serves more than 1.1 million people in an area covering 1,000 square miles, spanning from the rural Moorlands to major urban areas such as Stoke-on-Trent, Tamworth, Cannock and Burton-upon-Trent. The resident population is increased by university students and the large numbers who visit, socialise in, or travel through the area each year.

Although there are some more affluent areas, Staffordshire has a high level of poverty. Staffordshire Police are committed to protecting their communities by reducing and preventing crime and antisocial behaviour.

Why join Staffordshire Police with Police Now?

By joining Staffordshire Police through Police Now’s national graduate programmes, you’ll benefit from our unique training and development designed to progress your career and your impact in policing:

"

I've got no interest really in leaving the police now. It's definitely career that I want to stay with for the rest of my working life. The opportunities that get presented within the police are so vast you probably don't even know all the opportunities that exist.

I've been really fulfilled and rewarded by being given the opportunity to not just join the police, but going through the Police Now route that I have gone through, just because you get exposed to so many different parts of the organisation really early on, and that allows you to understand the roles, and that gives you an awareness of all the necessary skills, and that allows you to become a good detective from day one.
