We welcome applications from people of all different backgrounds, cultures, religions, ages, gender and sexual orientation. However, there are some eligibility conditions that all applicants will need to meet, so you need to check that you meet our requirements before submitting an application.
Applicants should be British Citizens, or passport holders from a full EU member state. You can also apply if you’re a commonwealth citizen or foreign national who is resident in the UK with indefinite leave to remain. All applicants must have been resident in the UK for the three years immediately preceding application.
If you have a criminal record, this doesn’t mean you’re automatically ineligible; it depends on the nature of your conviction. Please declare any caution or conviction on your application form. If you have any questions on this, you can contact HRenquiries@herts.pnn.police.uk for advice.
If you’re successful in the selection process, you’ll receive a conditional offer, and you’ll be required to pass a medical provide a three-year reference history and pass a security vetting process. You can find more detail on this in our applicant help section, and it’s essential that you read this.
