Being a Police Officer

Whether you’re looking for a later-life career change or you’re a fresh out of uni graduate, your Northumbria Police career path could take you in so many directions.

You could choose to specialise as a detective, working in child protection or even as an authorised firearms officer. But whatever your background, we’re all in this for the same reasons: to keep people safe and make a difference.

We strive to be representative of the public we serve and we’re encouraging women and people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities to join #TeamNP.
