As a police officer you would work to maintain order. You would help prevent and investigate crime. And you would also find and prosecute offenders.
Good police officers have honesty and confidence. They also have social awareness and a responsible attitude. They can also remain calm in sometimes life-threatening situations.
Vital work experience can be gained as a police community support officer or by volunteering as special constable and working in uniform with the local police service.
Police officer recruitment is handled by individual police forces, and their requirements can vary. In general you will need to have lived in the UK for 3 years. You must be over 18. And you will have to pass background and security checks.
