Our Police Staff
Police staff play a vital role in the delivery of our police service and protecting the public.
Working for Police Scotland doesn’t have to mean patrolling the streets. Just as important as our uniformed officers is our 5500-strong team of professional and support staff working behind the scenes.
A career with us means being part of an organisation with a clear purpose, focus, and values, where every individual contribution helps to keep people safe.
Whether you are managing our IT infrastructure, communicating with the public and media or maintaining our fleet of vehicles, your skills and experience will help make Scotland a safer place to live, work and visit.
It’s these skilled people who provide the organisational capability to police Scotland.
