City of London Police has launched a recruitment campaign to recruit up to 100 new constables as part of its commitment to the national Police Uplift Programme (PUP).

The recruitment campaign will see officers out in the City of London and surrounding areas of London, engaging with the public to encourage applicants to apply to become a constable at the force.

Chief Superintendent Rob Atkin MBE, from the City of London Police, who is leading the campaign, said: “The City of London Police is a great place to work and we want to encourage people who are eager to make a difference to think about joining us to start or further their career in policing.

“Policing is an amazing career that you can really shape yourself. We offer unique policing opportunities unlike any other police force, policing the iconic Square Mile steeped in history with a mixture of residential, business and visitor communities.

“This offers rewarding and exciting opportunities to make communities safer and bring offenders to justice.

“We look for people who can live and embody the values that are most important to us in the City of London: professionalism, integrity and compassion. If you recognise those qualities in yourself, then you will be a good fit for us and we look forward to receiving your application.”

The force is particularly keen to encourage applicants from minority ethnic backgrounds, women and those from the LGBT community.
