career information

Chief Constable Lynne Owens

Message from Chief Constable Lynne Owens

I am delighted that you may be considering joining Surrey Police. We aim to put the Surrey public first in everything we do by:

  • Keeping them safe
  • Being there when they need us
  • Relentlessly pursuing criminals

You would be an important part of that team. We rely on the consent of the public we police and it is therefore important to our legitimacy that we are representative of, and fair to, all communities that we serve.

Many other professions have a Code of Ethics, and in 2014 a Code of Ethics for policing was introduced. Every day officers and staff make critical judgements and decisions and they do so using this Code which covers our professional standards, principles and the way we make our decisions.

Our nine principles from the Code of Ethics

  • Accountability
  • Fairness
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Objectivity
  • Openness
  • Respect
  • Selflessness

Our diverse workforce

We are committed to creating a diverse police service, which reflects the community we serve. We value diversity and inclusion and want to attract the best people for the roles available, regardless of age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, disability, social status or religious beliefs. 

Our focus is on employing people with the competencies, behaviours and values that will enable both the employee and the Force to deliver the best possible service to the public. In recognition of our desire to create an inclusive working environment we are able to offer officers and staff benefits such as flexible working, childcare vouchers, multi-faith rooms, workplace adjustments, and staff associations. 

We have also formed a partnership with Diversity JobsOpen in a new window, the UK's largest diversity and inclusion focused careers site. All of our police staff vacancies are also listed on Diversity Jobs. 

Forensics open day

Working in the Surrey and Sussex Police Forensics team may not be exactly like an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, but it is definitely varied, challenging and rewarding.

On Saturday, 27 June the team will be talking to school pupils about the realities of working in police forensics at a careers open day. The event will take place at Imber Court, East Molesey and members of the team will be on hand to talk about the work of the department and the different career options on offer.

The event is open to school-age children who are interested in forensics as a future career and will soon be deciding upon their A-Level options, or looking into university courses, parents are also welcome to come along.  They will leave the event with a clearer idea of what’s involved in a career in police forensics and the personal qualities, skills and qualifications needed.

There are four time slots to choose from on the day and pre-booking is essential:

9.00 - 10.30
11.00 - 12.30
13.00 - 14.30
15.00 - 16.30

To book a place please email your preferred time slot to  ForensicsDays@surrey.pnn.police.uk
