About Derbyshire Police

Each and every one of them pull together to protect the people of Derbyshire and help maintain our status as one of the safest places to live and work in England.

A vibrant, challenging and rewarding organisation, Derbyshire Constabulary doesn’t just give people careers in Police Officer roles. There are also lots of police staff positions that support our policing operations and other areas of the force. In total, more than 3,500 people work here, with over half that number being Police Officers and the others a mix of Police Community Support Officers, police staff and volunteers.

We have a strong commitment to equality and diversity too, both within the organisation and in the service we provide. We aim for a representative 'Policing Family' that reflects the communities we serve. We also promote Positive Action - a range of measures that we can legally take to actively encourage a more diverse workforce. Positive Action doesn’t seek to remove competition, but means we treat all applicants according to need and in line with with current legislation.

Whether you join Derbyshire Constabulary as a police officer, special, volunteer or member of our police staff, you‘ll discover a workplace that can be demanding, but also extremely satisfying. We aim to build an inclusive culture where our people are committed to making Derbyshire safer together. Somewhere everyone’s proud of what they do and support and respect the people they work with.

At Derbyshire Constabulary, we aim to create an environment that puts people first. We want you to feel supported in everything you do, so you can give your very best. So, we’ll enable you to be innovative and try new things, and we’ll celebrate your successes. We recognise that people make mistakes, so we’ll encourage you to focus on learning from them. And our wellbeing initiatives are designed to make you feel valued and cared for.

If you have any personal or professional problems, we’ll give you the support and care you need. And we’re improving the support we offer to anyone who’s experiencing stress or mental health issues. So, we’ll listen to you, take action and communicate openly about what we’re doing. We’ll remove barriers and fix things that get in the way of doing a good job. We’ll act with compassion and stay true to our values when times are tough, including creating a workplace where any form of discrimination is unacceptable and acted on.

What’s more, we’ll create innovative terms and conditions, policies and procedures that attract, engage and motivate people who share our goals and values. And we’ll make sure that you're treated fairly by holding anyone who doesn't live up to our values to account.
