Recruitment for the Public Sector

Right now, we're investing to ensure we can exploit the opportunities that technology and digital services offer as an enabler of change and innovation, delivering both savings and more efficient and effective services that are better for everyone.


It is pivotal that we upgrade and improve that foundation technology platform to allow us to leverage both the operational and efficiency benefits of moving towards an operating model that has digital policing at its heart; fully leveraging technology as an enabler for effective policing and efficient back office support.

Innovating Information. Investing in the Future


The two forces are committed to the Policing Vision 2025 as set out by the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners and the National Police Chief’s Council.  The Vision sets out the Policing Plan leading to 2025 with the ambition of making transformative change across the whole of policing.

We're clear about our ambitions for Digital Services and its underpinning technology implementing a holistic approach that will deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time, and in the right place so that police officers, staff and the public can make well-informed decisions and we can deliver an excellent and value for money service.
