Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping will be highlighting the opportunities that await future police officers when he opens a special recruitment fair at the weekend.
The PCC will be visiting the Afro Caribbean National Artistic Centre (ACNA) in Nottingham on Saturday 10 December to meet prospective police officers and shine a spotlight on the positive work taking place within the county to keep the public safe.
The event will provide a wealth of information and advice for those interested in applying to become a Nottinghamshire police officer.
The Commissioner is keen to increase applications from people within diverse groups to ensure the Force accurately reflects the communities it serves and will be talking to visitors about the varied career path that policing offers.
He said: “I’m looking forward to meeting the budding police officers of the future and sharing our exciting plans for tackling crime in the county.
“Nottinghamshire is a fantastic force to work for and is at the forefront of pioneering approaches to crime prevention and detection. We are seeking the very best to join our ranks and make the county an even safer place to live.
“This new recruitment drive offers us an opportunity to increase the diversity in our workforce and I would like to encourage anyone interested in becoming a police officer to come along to this event to find out more and ultimately apply to join our policing family.
“We are not yet fully representative and we are working to address this imbalance. It’s vital that the Force reflects the community it is here to serve and everyone is fully committed to making this happen.”
The event will begin at 12 noon at the ACNA Centre, Hungerhill Road, Nottingham.
