We currently have exciting opportunities available for individuals who have previously been a police officer and served with a UK Police Force but are not in receipt of their pension.
As well as being one of the largest forces in the country, Hampshire has more police officers in front-line roles than average. Policing in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight includes:
- policing across 1,500 square miles, land which is largely rural but with densely populated cities
- a significant transport network including the M27 and M3, key rail hubs and two international airports
- critical national infrastructure sites to keep safe such as the ports in Southampton and Portsmouth as well as crucial oil refineries.
We value and invest in staff health and wellbeing because we know that only people who are well looked after can give the public the best possible protection. Our work on wellbeing is recognised nationally, and the unique challenges we face means there are opportunities beyond those available in many other forces.
