Become a Police Constable


Sussex Police invites people to apply for up to 120 Police Constables posts at 10.00 am on Monday morning (May 19th).

Police Constables carry out a huge variety of roles and it is an incredibly challenging and rewarding job.  Sussex Police seeks dedicated, positive and empathetic people to fill up to Constable positions with the Force in 2015/16.

T/Chief Constable Giles York said: “I’m delighted to be opening up recruitment again. I will be welcoming up to 120 new officers to Sussex Police who will start their training in March next year.

“Police Constables are an integral part of policing in Sussex, working closely with the community to protect them, cut crime and help manage crime and disorder at a local level.

“I am looking for people with a range of skills and experiences and from a wide range of backgrounds who share our values and have the drive to make a difference in the communities they service.

“I welcome applications from all members of the community as the force is currently underrepresented by people from BME communities. This is an opportunity for talented individuals to come and find out what we have to offer.”

Applicants must:

be aged 18 years or over by May 23rd 2014.

live in Sussex at the time of application

possess a full UK manual driving licence

have achieved a standard of education equivalent to A Level or independent patrol status as PCSOs or Special Constables

The application window will remain open, 24 hours a day, until 4.00 pm on Friday (May 23rd). Applicants will not be at any disadvantage if they apply towards the end of the window, as long as your application has been received by the deadline.

To inform potential candidates about the process and what criteria an applicant must meet a briefing pack has been prepared which is available at:
