Have you got what it takes to join the police?

Gloucestershire Constabulary is one of 24 forces across England and Wales taking part in a national campaign to recruit 20,000 new officers.

A career in policing can be really rewarding, both for individuals and the communities they serve.

There are various ways to join the police, depending on your work, life and educational experience. You don't need a degree to join and the police welcomes applications from people of all backgrounds, cultures and experiences.

Gloucestershire Constabulary is recruiting officers who have degrees, who have already served as police officers and who want to go down the apprenticeship route.

Following an apprenticeship in professional policing practice means you earn while you learn. The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA) is a three year professional degree apprenticeship, with both on and off-the-job learning. On completion, successful candidates will achieve a Level 6 Degree in Professional Policing Practice.
