Are you good with people and passionate about helping others?

The role of a Police Constable can be demanding but it's that variety which makes it one of the most rewarding jobs around. Every day presents a new challenge and you'll deal with different situations, ensuring public order is maintained at all times.

You'll be responsible for protection of life and property as well as prevention and detection of crime. Working as part of a close team, you’ll help to serve and protect the diverse communities and businesses of Kent. 

We are currently confirming our starting salary for individuals who commence on this programme. This will be updated shortly. 

(Note: these figures include a yearly £2,500 South East allowance).
