You will be required as part of Warwickshire Police recruitment process to successfully complete vetting and credit checks.

We want our organisation to be as diverse as the community it serves. 

We are currently under-represented by females and people from Ethnic Minority backgrounds and so are encouraging people from these groups to apply to become Police Officers or members of Police Staff.

If you are from one of these groups, please do ask the Recruitment Support Team to put you in contact with our Positive Action representatives to offer support and guidance with your police officer application process.

Positive action is about levelling the playing field and will also lead to a wider pool of skills, experience and talent from which to recruit.

Greater diversity equips the police workforce with the understanding it needs to better serve our diverse communities – this helps the service secure the trust and confidence of the public and aids effective crime prevention and commitment to justice.
