Valuing People Valuing Difference


Do you want to give something back to your community?

Derbyshire Constabulary has a strong commitment to equality and diversity, both within the organisation and in the service we provide. We aim for a representative 'Policing Family' that reflects the communities we serve.

We promote Positive Action; this is a range of measures that we can legally take to actively encourage a more diverse workforce.

Positive Action does not seek to remove competition and we treat all applicants according to need and in accordance with legislation currently in place.

We use Positive Action when recruiting for all 5 strands of the policing family. They are:

  • Police officers
  • Police staff
  • Police Support Volunteers
  • Police Community Support Officers
  • Special Constabulary
