Police have launched a new officer recruitment drive in Norfolk this week.
The initiative, which opened on Wednesday, is intended to find new constables to replace staff who leave the organisation through retirement or natural turnover.
The application window will be open for the next two weeks and Norfolk Police chiefs say they expect the first new recruits to take up their posts in the summer.
And the force’s assistant chief constable Charlie Hall said: “I am pleased that we are once again able to welcome new officers into our organisation.
“Policing provides a varied, rewarding and challenging career and I hope that members of the public from a variety of backgrounds will consider applying.
“Our officers demonstrate a range of skills, specialisms and experience in the work they deliver and I look forward to welcoming new recruits who will bring yet more talent and diversity to our teams.”
Anyone interested in applying should visit the force’s website, www.norfolk.police.uk for more information and to request an application pack.
Applications close at 5pm on Friday, April 8.
