Police Officer Vacancies


A date for the commencement of our police officer recruitment campaign has been set. From September 20, 2016, the force will once again be inviting applications from people who want to take on the challenge of being a full-time police officer.

There are no application forms or job descriptions available just yet, but you do have the chance to fill out an 'expression of interest' form at the foot of this page. Once complete, our HR staff will then get back in touch with you nearer to September 20 with further information on the application process.

You can also complete a 'suitability questionnaire'. The short series of questions, guidance and information is aimed at helping people decide if a policing career is for them.

It has been created by the College of Policing and can be found at http://www.ncalt.com/pre-join/index.html

And in the weeks running up to September 20, a number of virtual surgeries will be held on this website, where people can ask questions of the recruitment team.


To coincide with the news that we're recruiting, you can also watch a new film we've produced which offers a glimpse into the work of Derbyshire Constabulary.

The seven-minute long film - called ‘24/7’ - is a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges police officers and staff face every day.

It focuses on the huge variety of roles within the force, from volunteers and support staff to firearms officers, dog section and murder detectives.

It is aimed at offering an insight into what a career in policing can involve.
