With over 230 roles,
there is something for everyone
In our force we have over 230 different roles that are carried out on a daily basis by our family of staff. There are many roles that do not require you to have "warranted powers" like Police Officers have, but our forces would not be able to function or keep people safe without the support of police staff.
Police staff work from police stations throughout both force areas including our headquarters based in Exeter.
Police staff carry out a variety of roles such as Call Handlers, Personal Safety Trainers, Crime Analysts, Police Enquiry Officer, IT Consultants, Project Managers, Administrations Staff, Mechanics, Accountants, Lawyers to name a few.

The benefits of working with us
We recognise that a genuinely good role goes both ways. So for your commitment and contribution to keeping our communities safe, in return we offer the following benefits:
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.

The organisation is happy to consider applications for flexible working patterns unless the role has been objectively justified as being unsuitable for flexible working arrangements.
Volunteer Reservists are entitled to up to 10 days per year to attend annual training camp.
Blue Light Card provides those in the emergency services with discounts online and in-store.
They offer a range of official discounts from large national retailers to local businesses in a wide range of categories including holidays, cars, days out, fashion, gifts, insurance, phones and much more!

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.
We support a number of groups or networks for disabled, black and minority ethnic, Christian, women in policing, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual staff. These groups offer mutual support and enable us to get feedback on issues affecting staff in minority groups.
The EAP service is free to employees and their immediate family. Contact is by way of a confidential telephone service.
Short term, face-to-face counselling with a professional psychologist or counsellor close to where you live or work can also be arranged at no cost to the individual.
