Force Launches Major New Recruitment Drive
An ambition to recruit more than 200 police officers by 2021 has started with a major new recruitment campaign.
In April, Police Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold and Chief Constable Nick Adderley, announced the Force would be recruiting more than 200 new police officers over the next two years, taking the numbers above 1300 for the first time since 2010.
To increase applications and help bolster the ranks, the Force is using the strapline #FitTheBill alongside a recruitment campaign.
An inspirational video, available on the Force website and YouTube channel, is hoping to motivate and attract applications from a diverse background.
Chief Constable Nick Adderley, said: “This job really is like no other. There are few careers that offer the variety of a police constable role. There are many diverse areas that police officers develop into, from detective to specialist dog handler, from cybercrime expert to financial crime investigator. The list is endless.
“How far an officer goes, is really up to them. One thing that is guaranteed, is that the role gives people a real opportunity to give back to the community and make a real difference to people’s lives, while developing real life skills that will transform who they are.”

Landmark Neighbourhood Watch Cybercrime Survey Launched
Help us understand the impact of cybercrime and be in with a chance to win £50 worth of M&S vouchers
Neighbourhood Watch has today launched a landmark new survey to understand the impact of cybercrime on communities across England and Wales.
Traditionally Neighbourhood Watch has been focused on keeping people safe in the places they live but with the advent of new technology, it’s clear people can be at their most vulnerable when they occupy online spaces.
Action Fraud, the national fraud and cybercrime reporting centre run by the City of London Police, revealed that last year cybercrime victims lost £28m to online criminals. It reports more than 12,000 cases of cybercrime every six months.
With the threat from online criminals only ever increasing, it is essential we understand the impact this type of crime has on members as well as their understanding and perception of cybercrime.
The survey, designed in conjunction with cybersecurity company Avast, takes just 10 minutes to complete and one lucky responder will be in with a chance to win £50 worth of Marks and Spencer vouchers.
The survey can be completed via the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/nw_cybercrime
It would be great if you could share the survey with other Neighbourhood Watch members particularly those who have been victims of cybercrime.
