Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne writes in her latest newsletter about recruiting more police officers in the region:
“Having recently launched its four-year Transformation Strategy after a long period of re-adjustment of local policing, police officers and staff and local people have every reason to be weary of changes, but there is a very positive change just over the horizon.
“With the police budget now in much healthier condition thanks to local people contributing more, and money from reserves, over 160 new PCs are being recruited and will start training in the next six months. Sussex Police has already recruited a pool of 104 successful police constable applicants of whom 72 will start their training in September, and a further 32 will start in December.
“On top of that, the force is looking to recruit a further 72 officers in a new campaign that launches at the end of this month. So if you think you are up for the challenge of policing Sussex get ready to get your applications in or encourage your friends and relatives. It really could be the start of the most rewarding career.”
