Careers with Derbyshire Constabulary

Making Derbyshire safer together

Find your place with Derbyshire Constabulary

Join Derbyshire Constabulary and you’ll find a team that pulls together, across departments to protect the people of Derbyshire. Whatever your role, you’ll be working alongside a variety of highly motivated, ambitious and capable people.

Police Community Support Officers

Working as a police community support officer (PCSO) involves tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in your local community. It can be demanding, but pretty exciting too, as each day brings new challenges. Your main role will be to patrol, on foot or bicycle, and ensure a highly visible presence on the streets, in all weathers. 

One of our key local initiatives is the introduction of our Safer Neighbourhood Teams. Where PCSOs, PCSO supervisors, Digital PSCOs and Neighbourhood Investigation Officers work together to help build good relationships with our communities.

You’ll also work with other organisations, like local councils and housing associations, to tackle issues of concern in the community, with a focus on lower-level crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour. Along the way, you’ll work on projects to address longer-term crime problems, develop relationships with people in the local area and collect information about what’s happening on your patch.

Focus on ... inclusion

To reflect the communities we serve, we take a range of positive action measures when we’re recruiting. These aim to take away or reduce barriers that some cultural groups face when they look to work for us. We also support a number of staff support networks for people who are already part of the policing family.

Join us and you’ll need to promote equality and diversity in all you do, every day. And you’ll find our flexible policies and practices meet your individual needs, while supporting our values and ethos.
