Devon & Cornwall Police
About Devon & Cornwall Police
Devon and Cornwall Police is committed to fairness towards all members of the community. We value diversity in our workforce and need people from diverse backgrounds with skills and experiences to help us deliver excellence in local policing across Devon and Cornwall.
WHY WORK FOR US
Continuous Training and Development
We are committed to the development of our staff and we have an infrastructure in place to support training and development which includes, funding for approved training courses and recognised qualifications appropriate to role as well as short courses and online learning.
An increasing number of police staff carry out roles formerly performed by police officers, for example detention officers and crime scene investigators. Where these opportunities arise, appropriate training and mentoring is provided to ensure staff are fully prepared and equipped with the right level of knowledge and skills to undertake the role.
You will usually commence employment at the first point on the salary scale advertised and be rewarded by annual increments until reaching the top of the scale. An annual pay review takes place in September each year and is negotiated with Unison on behalf of all police staff.
At the start of your employment, you will automatically become a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme administered by Peninsular Pensions.
