You may have seen recent news coverage that the force is meeting its targets for the national 20,000 officers recruitment drive.

By the end of March this year, 145 officers had been recruited above our baseline.

The year three allocation for Cambridgeshire is 82 officers and these figures are on top of our “normal” anticipated recruitment levels.

The current officer headcount is 1671 – the most in the constabulary’s history – which is great news and will contribute towards an enhanced policing service for you, the public.

However, we cannot afford to rest on our laurels, and we continue our search for people with the right attributes and skills to become police officers.

We are recruiting for police officers now, so if you, or someone you know, is interested in applying, or maybe just finding out more, then visit our website or come and meet us at one of a series of recruitment events this summer.

You will be able to speak to police officers about what the job and recruitment process is really like and find out more about our two new entry routes – the degree apprenticeship and degree-holders pathway.

We’d love to meet you at these events:

  • Monday, 23 May – there will be an online event anyone can attend from 7pm to 8.30pm. Just visit the webpage and click on the link.


  • Thursday, 26 May – we will be at a Ferry Project job fair at the Queen Mary Centre, Queens Road, Wisbech, from 10am until 5pm.
