Police Officer

Recruitment Update - 15 July 2020

Police Scotland have introduced a revised application form for entry as a Police Constable.  It can be found on the Application page and is to be used with immediate effect.  

Please note, from 1 August 2020, no previous versions of the Police Scotland application form for Police Constable (Regular) entry will be accepted and will be rejected straight away.  Guidance notes are contained on the Application Form for you to follow.  

For new applicants to Police Scotland, please also be advised there may be some delay in progressing you through the recruitment stages as we work through all of your applications.   

 



We are also pleased to announce Police Scotland has commenced a phased return to our recruitment activities.  If you are a candidate already in our recruitment programme, a Recruitment Officer will be in contact with you in the near future to arrange your next step.

Due to the recruitment programme being reduced to take account of government guidelines on COVID, it is inevitable candidates will experience greater delays whilst progressing through the various stages.  We ask you to remain patient.  

For new applicants to Police Scotland, please also be advised there may be some delay in progressing you through the recruitment stages as we continue to work through all your applications.   

Posting Preference

Police Scotland prioritises applications for Police Officer entry based on resourcing demands. 
We remain particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates who are willing to be posted to our rural and remote locations in N Division – Highland and Islands and L Division – Argyll. 

If you intend to submit an application with U Division – Ayrshire or V Divison – Dumfries and Galloway, please contact the recruitment team before doing so as there are currently limited opportunities in these areas.
