HAVE you ever considered joining the Police Force? If so, Warwickshire Police are organising an event just for you!
Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police are inviting anyone interested in applying to either force to attend the open evening where they will hear from police officers, special constables, PCSOs, detectives and other specialist departments.
Those interested should go along to The Cube, Methodist Church Hall, Edward Street, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, CV11 5RH on Wednesday 25th March at 6pm.
Potential recruits will learn about what it’s like to do the job, what the application stage involves, the training provided, fitness levels needed and the vetting and medical checks required.
There will also be an opportunity to meet existing officers and staff who will be available to answer any queries to help people decide if it is the right career choice for them.
Superintendent Nav Malik said: “This is a real opportunity for those wanting a career in policing to come along and see what we do. We are offering people the chance to ask questions and get fully prepared in advance of applying to give them the best possible chance of success.
“Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police protect people from harm across four counties incorporating many diverse communities. We strive to ensure our workforce is representative of the communities we serve. Therefore, I would also like to appeal to women and members of our black and minority ethnic communities to consider policing as an exciting and rewarding career.”
The evening will commence promptly at 18:00 and finish at 20:00 and is open to anyone aged over 18 living in and around Warwickshire. No booking is required, just come along and report to the entrance area on arrival.
Recruitment is currently open for special constables, police community support officers, cadets, police support volunteers and various police staff roles including opportunities to work in the force control rooms.
