With 20,000 new officers being recruited across the country in the next three years, this is the biggest investment into policing in a generation. The opportunity for us is huge.
As the first part of a wave of new recruitment, Hampshire Constabulary is looking for people who want to be detectives and part of a professional and dedicated team carrying out a wide variety of crime investigations, including serious and complex cases, cyber-crime and other investigations at a level deemed appropriate.
Recruitment will extend to uniformed police officers by the end of 2019.
If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining us, please do share this alert with them.

The following is an open letter from Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney to the future police officers of Hampshire:
Millions of people are hooked on crime dramas. Will good triumph over evil?
Can the detectives figure out who did it? How will they get the evidence they
need? And, as a viewer, can you figure it all out first?
Of course it is not really like that. We deal with real life. We help those who
have no one else to turn to. When the most horrific things happen, it is the
officers and staff of Hampshire Constabulary who make a difference for the
families and friends of those victims. Delivering justice and protecting people
is what we are here to do.
Crime is changing. Criminals are more digitally savvy and often operate
out of the public eye. To keep ahead we have built an award winning cyber
team, and we are investing in the health and wellbeing of our people in a way
that sets us apart from other police forces. But we need to do more, and we
need extra officers and staff. That is where you come in.
Maybe you are a brilliant problem solver, someone who is motivated
by being part of a team, or just want to build a successful career?
You might have language or digital skills that could make the difference in
an investigation, or maybe you just want to do a job that offers variety and
opportunity. It doesn’t matter if you have never considered policing before.
Diversity is something we welcome and want to increase.
The realities of policing are not easy. We face tough challenges, but it is
hugely rewarding to know that you are making a difference. I am so pleased
the opportunity to join us is there for the next generation in a way that it
hasn’t been in recent years.
Our first extra wave of recruitment starts now, focused on detectives.
By later in the year we will be in full swing, recruiting uniformed officers too,
so sign up now.
