Police Officer – Rejoiner opportunities 36 views

Cheshire Constabulary are now open for applications from former police officers that have resigned or retired from Cheshire Constabulary or any other Home Office force.

As a re-joining police officer, you will be at the very heart of protecting the local communities of Cheshire, driven by motivation to keep people safe and you will pride yourself on acting with integrity and honesty and have the highest respect for diversity amongst your colleagues and the communities you serve.

By re-joining us you can help us make a difference – simply by being the individual that you are.

As part of the policing family you will be trusted, developed, supported, protected and valued.

We want great officers and we also encourage individuality. We want you to be you.

Am I eligible?

To apply as a Re-joiner you must:

  • Have previously served as a member of a police force.
  • Have either resigned or retired from that police force.
  • Have satisfactorily completed the period of probationary service in the rank of constable.

Successful applicants will be aligned to an intake of new officers (IPLDP+) but training will be tailored to meet their individual needs but will be based on the below guidelines:

Re-joining within 0-12 months – join an IPLDP+ intake, your knowledge and experience will be assessed at the start of the programme with necessary training identified and delivered to ensure you are ready to be operational as soon as possible.

Re-joining between 1 and 5 years absence – join an IPLDP+ intake and complete most of the training programme, operational readiness will be assessed throughout and you will be made operational once fully trained and ready.

Re-joining after 5 years plus – join an IPLDP+ intake and complete the full programme, once complete you will be posted to response teams.

Please note that whilst previous specialisms, training or LPU will be considered when identifying postings a return to previous role cannot be guaranteed.

Before applying we recommend that potential candidates contact their pension provider to understand the potential implications of re-joining and that they understand and comply with the upper age limits outlined in the Police Regulations 2013.

We are committed to ensuring the force is representative of the community it serves and are encourage applications from individuals from underrepresented groups.
