The police employs people from many different walks of life. Just over one quarter of our staff of 10,000 are not police officers. The police organisation has a huge range of jobs to offer to civilians as well. We need people who are able to assist police officers in their work, in addition to which we employ experts and professionals in fields such as ICT, law, project management, economics, HR, communications, public contracts, licensing, teaching and research.
