County-wide open evenings to be held in police recruitment drive

A number of recruitment events will take place across the county as part of an ongoing recruitment drive for police officers.

Events will be held in Barrow, Carlisle and Workington over the next month where potential applicants can meet uniform officers and detectives from a number of specialist areas and learn more about the day to day duties of a police officer.

Superintendent Matt Kennerley said: “We are looking for committed and talented individuals to join the ranks of a high-performing police force.

“If you would like to make a positive difference to society then becoming a police officer maybe the perfect role for you.

“Modern day policing is a challenging but incredibly rewarding environment to work in. Those who can work effectively with others and demonstrate high levels of personal initiative, drive and resilience are wanted to help ensure the safety of the public across our county.

“The Constabulary is always striving to develop our workforce and seeking to build a diverse range of police officers from all walks of life as we know this is important to enable us to continue to deliver the high level of policing that our public deserves.

“If you are considering a change in career or are interested in joining us I encourage you to attend one of our recruitment events, to find out more information.”

Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall, said: “Cumbria Constabulary is a great force working hard to protect the people of Cumbria, and I would like to encourage applications for what is a fantastic career with many challenges and opportunities.

“It also offers rewarding work in a dynamic and fast paced environment where you have to show real leadership, and most importantly make a difference to your local community.

“There is no such thing as the ideal background, we just need good people, why not go along to one of the open evenings, it is a great way to get some insight into what this worthwhile career has to offer.”
