If you enjoy facing challenges and coming up with solutions to problems and want to keep your community safe whilst developing your own skill sets, then policing could be for you. You’ll need empathy, common-sense and compassion as well as a desire to make a difference. You’ll be a paid officer from day one, working alongside experienced officers.
Applicants for this vacancy will be posted to stations in the South Devon (LPA) area only:
Conway House, Ashburton
Heathfield, Newton Abbot
Please note: Whilst on probation you must work at least 24 hours per week (or 1,248 hours per year). However, initial training must be completed on a full-time basis (approximately first 31 weeks). Salary, leave entitlement etc would be calculated on a pro-rata basis. If you decided to apply as a part timer it would be really helpful if you indicated your intentions ideally on the application form or at the earliest opportunity. Importantly though, a request to work part-time will not affect or influence your application in any way, as a decision will be solely based on your evidenced application and subsequent performance over various assessments.
