Policing Minister visits Sussex to launch national PC recruitment campaign
On the day of the launch of the national campaign to recruit 20,000 extra police officers, Minister of State for Crime, Policing and the Fire Service, Kit Malthouse, visited Police Headquarters, Lewes, to learn more about officer recruitment in Sussex.

Mr Malthouse was welcomed by Chief Constable Giles York and PCC Katy Bourne, and spent time inspecting and meeting new recruits – including 72 trainee PCs and 18 apprentice PCSOs – and saw first-hand how Sussex Police has accelerated police officer recruitment to its highest levels in a decade.

Policing Minister Kit Malthouse said: "We have wasted no time in launching the national campaign to recruit 20,000 police officers today, a priority of this government.

“We want to see people from all backgrounds in Sussex sign up to join the police force’s ranks.

“They must have one thing in common – a desire to protect communities, tackle crime and be a force for all.”

Sussex Police Chief Constable Giles York said: “We were honoured to have Mr Malthouse join us at Police Headquarters on the day we launch our latest police officer recruitment drive, providing the opportunity to discuss the national campaign, Be A Force For All, which will see 20,000 officers recruited nationally over the coming years.

Successful recruits will join Sussex Police as an officer through one of two new entry routes created by the College of Policing, with the demands of modern day policing in mind. The Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship offers a three-year apprenticeship programme with both on and off-the-job learning, leading to degree in Professional Policing Practice.

The Degree Holder Entry Programme is aimed at existing degree holders of any subject area and offers a two-year practice-based programme, after which individuals receive a level six graduate diploma in professional policing practice.

If you have the judgement to make quick decisions; are confident to be the first person in; have the compassion and empathy to help those in need and the resilience to serve the community every single day, then being a police officer could be the career you have always dreamed of. 
To apply, visit: https://www.sussex.police.uk/police-forces/sussex-police/areas/careers/jobs/police-officers/  before midnight, Thursday 19 September.

*In June 2019, Sussex Police received almost 1,100 people applications from people who had the desire to become a police officer in the county, including an uplift in female and BAME applicants.
