50/50 to be suspended for part time recruits…

There are only to be 150 of the prospective part time local constables, but interesting that for this particular category, the requirement for 50/50 recruitment is to be lifted. Deputy Chief Constable Paul Leighton:

“Policing With the Community is at the very centre of everything we do as a police service and I encourage people from all sections of the community in these areas to consider applying, it`s very important that these officers are fully representative of the community they are working in.

“Indeed, part of the recruitment process involves applicants showing that they have ties with the local community.

“Obviously, living in the area will be one way to do this, but for people who study or work in one of the five districts, or who have close relations living in the area, the recruitment process will be open to them too.”
