Explore your potential with Northamptonshire Police

Northamptonshire Police puts the public and the communities we serve at the heart of all we do. Ours is a great county to live in, and a great county to police.

Our force mission is ‘Fighting crime, protecting people’, and we are focussed on taking the fight back to criminals, while providing a public service which cares for and supports those who need it, when they need it.

PC and DC opportunities

If you’re a police constable or a detective constable with another force and have what it takes to join our team, we want to hear from you.

We’re looking for trained officers from other Home Office forces who have passed their probationary period and are substantive in rank, with outstanding communication skills, and a genuine passion for providing high-quality policing.

We offer excellent career progression opportunities for both internal and external candidates.

Whether you already work for the force, or are looking to transfer here, contact us to find out more about our current promotion opportunities.

Don’t just take our word for it. See it with your own eyes. We are exclusively offering police officers who are considering transferring, an opportunity to visit one of our stations for a day.

This is a great opportunity to really experience what it means to be a Northamptonshire Police officer and confirm you are making the right decision. You will have the opportunity to speak with our officers, have a look around and get a true feel for what it’s like in Northamptonshire.

We offer an exciting range of career paths and specialisms, with great promotion opportunities. Should you take the decision to join our ranks, we will work with you to understand your skill-set and what best meets your needs and ours, including negotiating a suitable start date.
