Police Staff


We are one of the largest employers in the South West with over 1500 members of police staff working in a wide variety of roles across Devon and Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

CSIs, Call Handlers, crime analysts, Police Enquiry Officers, IT consultants, Project Managers, administration staff and mechanics are just a few of the different roles in our organisation.

Our aim is to develop a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve and is committed to the belief that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. We particularly welcome applications from members of all minority groups. 

The police forces of Devon & Cornwall and Dorset have established a Strategic Alliance to provide a single service within certain functions across the three counties. Some of our current departments will be hosted by Devon & Cornwall Police and others by Dorset Police. As a consequence employment advertised roles may at some point transfer to Dorset Police following the principles laid down by TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings Regulations 2006). In most cases this will not necessitate a change in location. Proposals for which force is to ‘host’ a given function and the arrangements to implement any new structure across a business area are at various stages and applicants for roles will be updated accordingly throughout the recruitment process.
