Police Constable Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP)

Staffordshire Police Headquarters

Can you see yourself... as a police officer?

Do you want a career which is challenging, where no two days are the same and where your actions and decisions will help to ensure that Staffordshire is a safer place to live?  Are you interested in obtaining a graduate diploma enabling you to "learn while you earn"?

If so, then a career as a police officer with Staffordshire Police may be just the job for you.  We are partnering with Staffordshire University to train our students, whilst helping them to earn a postgraduate qualification, which will be recognised internationally. Student officers will learn on the job as well as studying at university whilst they are serving as officers.  You are required to hold a degree to apply for this role. Most of your learning will be done digitally. You'll log onto University systems and watch lectures and access learning modules from your computer, without needing to travel to campus

Policing is a job like no other and you will need to have a passion for public service, excellent customer service skills, the ability to build relationships and work in a team with the commitment to make a difference to the lives of the communities of Staffordshire. Staffordshire Police is a diverse area with both rural and urban conurbations, serving over 1m people.

We anticipate new student officers joining us in the early part of 2020 and onwards and they will train and study over a two year period. 

Salary on appointment will be £22,500. 

We are committed to building a vibrant and diverse workforce and particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups within the community.  If you are from an under-represented group and would like to discuss your application, please email your contact details to Positive.Action@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk
