New recruits sought to join experienced officers at Dorset Police

First published in News

A NEW scheme to bring transferee officers into Dorset Police started today.

There are vacancies for 25 police constables to join the force in 2014/15 from other constabularies across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The vacancies are for uniform patrol constables and specialist-trained armed response constables.
It comes just six months after Dorset Police launched a recruitment drive for new PCs – the first external campaign in four years.

Chief Constable Debbie Simpson said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for current serving police constables to join the Dorset Police team and help make a difference.

“We are fortunate to police a beautiful and diverse county which attracts millions of visitors each year.

“I’d encourage anyone who is interested in forging a career with Dorset Police to visit our website and find out more.”

The recruitment process for transferee uniform patrol constables and specialist-trained armed response constables begins today and closes on Saturday, May 10.

I thought that not very long ago our 'esteemed' PCC was getting rid of officers to save money?

Sign up now and be out of work in a few months. What is this PCC guy on he doesn't know if he is on his a**e or his elbow. We need to make cuts to save money, sorry we need to recruit more officers, sorry we over spent so need cuts.
The best thing would be to save money by firing him and his motley crew.

No chance. They want to get experienced bobbies on the cheap by letting other areas bear the cost of their training.
