In Essex Police, we have officers from all different backgrounds in a variety of roles protecting and serving the communities of Essex.
Our officers are from military, retail, office and teaching backgrounds to name just a few. Whatever their background, their skills have brought something unique and valuable to their officer role.
Driven by their motivation to keep people safe, our officers pride themselves on acting with integrity and honesty and are guided by a high moral compass.
We like, where possible, to recruit local people, with local knowledge, so we can increasingly reflect the wonderfully diverse communities we serve.
Our officers fit the bill, could you?
