Dyfed-Powys Police is Recruiting Police Officers


Dyfed-Powys Police

Could you be one of 44 new Police Constables joining Dyfed-Powys Police in the new year?

Superintendent Ifan Charles, Head of Learning and Development at Dyfed-Powys Police, said:

“Becoming a police officer is a challenging and rewarding career, but it is not just any job.

“You will work to reduce crime and the fear of crime, and promote confidence among local people that the police understand and are prepared to deal with issues that matter most to them.

“Applications open on January 28, 2019 until midday on February 15, 2019, and for those who have applied before, the process will look different.

“We’ll be using a new online platform that makes the process much quicker. If you’re successful at application stage you can book straight on to the next one.

“The training offered to new recruits has also changed – before applying make sure you know about the new entry routes.

“Police officers make difficult decisions that impact the public every day. They face complex problems and dangerous situations, with growing demands from digital investigation and vulnerable people. The new training package is designed with that in mind.

“If you join us you will play a key role in supporting victims and witnesses and providing reassurance to people who have been subjected to crime and antisocial behaviour.  Many people will look to you for guidance and protection from such experiences.

“You’ll be a person who thrives on challenges, and are willing to work hard to learn the skills necessary for this difficult but critical role.  This can be a tough and unpredictable job, but it is also an extremely rewarding position.

“Every day when you put on your uniform and go to work, you will be making life safer and more secure for your friends and neighbours, and making your town a better place to live.”

As part of the recruitment drive a series of application workshops will take place across the force. These workshops are aimed at promoting awareness of the role of a police officer, the new entry routes to policing, how to write a successful application form and encouraging applications from under-represented groups.

Superintendent Charles explained:

“In Dyfed-Powys Police we are proud to be for and of the communities we serve. We are committed to achieving a workforce that represents everybody we serve and we encourage people from our Black and Ethnic Minority (BAME), Disabled and LGB&T communities to apply.”
