- Transferee Armed Response Constables only
The Armed Response Unit is a growing department of highly trained, professional and motivated officers based at divisional operating bases in the east and centre of the county. They incorporate a number of specialist officers, including Close Protection Officers, Specialist Firearms Officers and Rifle Officers who are regularly deployed around the county and beyond, and are based within ARV teams. ARV officers follow a bespoke rota which is popular with staff, whilst meeting operational demand. Lancashire has a reputation nationally for first class training, development and facilities, including a recently refurbished 50m 6 lane range. This is an especially exciting time to join us as the department has recently been given a significant investment in state of the art weaponry, equipment, fleet and uniform (including the latest PPE). A review is also underway to evolve the tasking and deployment of ARV to better reflect the current climate of risk and threat.
As a well-supported organisation, we police diverse and vibrant communities and are committed to supporting our staff, eliminating all forms of discrimination and valuing difference. We welcome transferees from all backgrounds and experiences who meet our eligibility criteria, recognising that a diverse organisation is what helps to make us part of the communities we serve.
Lancashire Constabulary’s Chief Constable has a long term aspiration for the Constabulary to continuously evolve to ensure we are configured in the most effective way to deal with changing demand to keep people safe and provide the best policing services in the country.
