There’s strength in different ways of thinking, different backgrounds, and different faiths.
If you’re looking for a new challenge, Essex Police could be the place for you.
We have everything here – from beautiful countryside villages to the buzz of our urban towns and cities, enviable coastline, and the pull of the borders of London. There’s no telling what any day will bring in the life of an Essex Police officer or detective.
The police aren’t just in your county, they’re the heart of local communities, too.
PC Rob Hance, one of the leads of the Christian Police Association, often supports members of the Association with any issues they may be facing, and says it’s been a privilege within his career.
We want our officers, staff, and volunteers to be as diverse as Essex itself and represent the best of us all. With the right values, and whatever differences you may think you have, Essex Police could be the place for you to change lives.
Inspector Lucy Bearman, who’s a mum of two and has been an officer since 2006, said:
I became a police officer 14 years ago after working with the police as a civilian member of staff for four years.
I saw first-hand what amazing work the police officers were doing and how Essex Police were like an extended family to all its staff and officers.
I could see how much the officers loved their jobs and how helping others made such a difference to society and the community we live in and I wanted to be able to play a part in that picture.
The thing I love most about my job is the opportunities it brings.
The opportunity to try and improve the community I work and live in, to be a good role model, to gain knowledge through training and support given by the organisation, to progress into other areas or for promotion, and the opportunity to try amazing things that you would never be able to try anywhere else!
I’m really excited to be able to share my experiences and give an insight into what it’s like to work in the police.
It’s a job I love and I’d be delighted if my story can inspire others to sign up!”
Whether you’re interested in our different specialisms – from detectives to firearms, or our Marine Unit – or your passion is responding to real-time crime, or making connections with local community groups, there’s something for everyone at Essex Police.
