Staffordshire Police has confirmed it is opening its recruitment window for new police constables.

The force has not confirmed the number of new positions, but says it anticipates the new bobbies joining during 2016.

Chief Constable Jane Sawyers said: “Few jobs are more rewarding and challenging than that of a police officer. From day one you’ll be helping to fight crime and protect the public.

“We need people who are good communicators with a calm, confident personality, problem solvers, team players and people who easily build relationships, respect other people and appreciate views from communities across the county.

“We find these in people from all communities and we therefore welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds who can demonstrate these skills and attributes.”

Applicants must complete an online questionnaire before midday on September 4. Eligible individuals will then be sent a full application pack.
