More Police Jobs in North Yorkshire
8:58am 24th April 2013
Julia Mulligan, the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, is today announcing the launch of a police officer recruitment campaign for approximately 60 vacancies between now and the end of 2014.
Julia says, "This is part of my commitment to making North Yorkshire residents feel safe; by ensuring police officer numbers remain stable across the county". As officers retire or transfer to other Forces, Julia says she is steadfast in ensuring the right numbers of officers are available to respond to the needs of all of North Yorkshire’s communities.
Without taking the step of recruiting student officers, the Chief Constable might not be able to deliver the goals within the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan, including reducing harm across the county, making sure victims are at the heart of policing and working with partners to cut anti-social behaviour she says.
One of only a small number of forces to announce recruitment opportunities, North Yorkshire Police is anticipating a great response from members of the public wishing to join and work in one of the best police forces, and safest areas, in the country.
Ms Mulligan says, the force is looking for candidates who are passionate about making a difference in their communities, committed to reducing harm and for those who want to do more for victims.
Commenting on the launch, Julia Mulligan said, “I know that people want to see officers on the streets and this campaign will help to make sure that we maximise coverage across North Yorkshire for the next few years.
“The recruitment of high quality officers is a fundamental part of my central goal to ensure people are safe, that we remain the safest county in England and residents of North Yorkshire feel safe.
“Undoubtedly, there will be a huge number of people who are interested and it is probable the website will be extremely busy during the application period which is open for two weeks. If people do experience a delay I would ask that they please bear with us as we work to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible. ”
