There’s never been a more exciting time to join Essex Police. We offer three entry routes into policing, some of which will enable you to gain an externally recognised qualification on successful completion:
- Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA)
- Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP)
- Initial Police Learning & Development Programme (IPLDP)
Whichever route you choose to join us through, you will receive the best possible training and support to fully equip and prepare you for the challenging but rewarding role as a police constable. You’ll be employed as an officer from day one, learning alongside experienced officers on the frontline, while earning a competitive salary and enjoying other discounts and benefits.
Our PCDA and DHEP routes, work towards a fully funded degree or graduate diploma in Professional Policing Practice as part of the Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF).
