Sussex Police serves a resident population of over one and a half million people: as well as people who live and work in our county, we welcome millions of visitors each year from the UK and overseas, including over thirty million passengers travelling through Gatwick Airport each year. Our county is very diverse including rural and urban areas as well as cosmopolitan cities like Brighton & Hove.

Our defining statement, 'Serving Sussex', means we're committed to keeping people safe (catching criminals, cutting crime and dealing with critical incidents), strong neighbourhood policing and making best use of our resources. Sussex Police demonstrates a firm commitment to equality and diversity, both within the organisation and through the service we provide to our public.

We have almost 3,000 police officers and over 2,200 police staff, including Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), who perform a wide range of operational and support roles. We are also lucky to have a team of volunteers that includes over 350 Special Constables and around 180 Police Cadets. The roles of uniformed officers who respond to calls and PCSOs that work out in the community are probably familiar to most people. But policing involves a wide range of different functions, many of which aren't visible to the public but are nonetheless an essential part of how we police.

For example, we have specific teams for public order, roads policing, serious and organised crime and counter terrorism. Within these areas there are a range of specialist, operational and support roles, carried out by a mixture of officers and police staff.
