Police Officers


GMP is one of the largest provincial forces in England and Wales.

Being part of such a large force brings fantastic opportunities in terms of career development and promotion, meaning that once you have finished your two-year probationary period, you have the opportunity to take your career in any direction you choose.

Update: February 2012

The Greater Manchester Police Authority has approved GMP's plans to recruit 50 student police officers over the next three years. Initially the recruitment focus will be on filling these roles from GMP's PCSOs, Special Constables and other Police Staff. The details of the recruitment plan will be published in mid to late March.
