Are you a police officer looking for a new challenge?

You’ll find everything you’re looking for and more in Surrey. Variety. Challenge. Opportunity. 

We help to keep Surrey as one of the nation’s most desirable counties in which to live and work. From beautiful countryside to vibrant towns, Surrey has a place and pace of life to suit everyone. What’s more, London, the south coast and two international airports are all close by.

You can be the difference. Inclusivity is important to Surrey Police which is why we are looking for talented individuals to reflect the communities we serve.  So whatever your background, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation, we welcome you, and your application.

We are a relatively small force, but we are big on innovation. We take a positive approach to doing things differently. That includes working closely with Sussex Police, other regional forces and our partners across the county to improve services for our communities. Everything we do is driven by the desire to ensure our officers and staff work in the best way for the public.

As a cherished member of our warm and welcoming force family, you’ll be valued as an individual, and trusted to do your job and make your own decisions. Here, you will have a real opportunity to get your voice heard. With support to become the best you can be, both professionally and personally, you will enjoy scope to take on a range of roles, specialise in areas that interest you, and take advantage of progression opportunities.
