Perth & Kinross Local Area Commander’s Bulletin

 

Wednesday 3rd August 2022

Image with officer and text

In Police Scotland no two days are the same, no two careers are the same and no two officers are the same. The police officer job is unique. It will challenge you mentally and physically every day. It can be tough, but also incredibly rewarding.

Your job will be to protect the vulnerable, support victims of crime and build trust with the people and communities you serve.

We will train you with the skills you need to rise to the challenge, and provide support through our police family.

You will become part of a 200 year long history of policing in Scotland. You will join a team of 23,000 officers and staff dedicated to keeping people safe.

We are looking to recruit people who work and live by our values of integrity, fairness and respect and have a commitment to public service. In this role, you will build lasting relationships with colleagues and the people who live and work in the area you are based in.

In order to apply to become a police officer, you must meet essential criteria. You will then take part in our selection process. This includes a fitness assessment and a medical, which takes place at the end of the process.

Police officer applications are accepted all year round, although we have four main intakes each year.

We are keen to receive applications from people in under-represented communities. We also want to hear from people willing to work in remote locations i.e. Highland and Islands and Argyll.

For further information please visit www.scotland.police.uk
