Chief Constable Giles York
Sussex is one of the largest counties in the UK, and is divided into three Divisions, Brighton & Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex. The vibrant City of Brighton & Hove is a lively, diverse and rapidly expanding city, which boasts good transport links to the capital. The county also has a varied mix of smaller coastal towns and different rural communities, with some of England\'s most attractive countryside. Towards the north of Sussex the UK\'s second largest airport, Gatwick, can be found, which sees millions of passengers each year travelling to around 200 destinations worldwide.
This is an exciting time to join Sussex Police, as we are going through considerable modernisation to transform what we do, how we operate to the highest standards, and how we improve our service to local communities.
Our Chief Constable\'s vision for policing in Sussex in 2020 sees us \'protecting our communities, prioritising those who are most vulnerable to harm, and being relentless in the pursuit of criminals, as well as operating efficiently to a reduced budget and being a modern, trusted workforce with integrity at our core\'.
A police officer\'s role is about more than working to reduce crime. It is now just as much about reducing the fear of crime, working in partnership with communities to make a real difference and improve the quality of life for everyone.
If you\'re an experienced Detective from a Home Office force and would like to work in Investigations in West Sussex (particularly Crawley) or Brighton & Hove, then we\'d like to hear from you.
