Police Officers

@pageName

Sussex Police are currently closed to applications for the role of Police Constable. Please keep checking this page for further updates.

Police Constables work as part of a team and under general supervision, but will often operate independently. Their responsibilities include protecting life and property, preventing and detecting crime and maintaining public order through a range of sworn powers in line with organisational standards.

Police Constables are at the frontline of the criminal justice system. They are required to deal with crime, missing people, sudden deaths, family feuds, child abuse, community tensions and much more.

The role is a challenging and varied one. The training you receive will assist you to deal with these situations successfully but you will need to be comfortable in dealing with a variety of incidents day-to-day as they occur. To excel, you will need to be resilient, patient and a strong team player.
