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.

The role is a challenging and varied one.
