Are you seeking an exciting new step within your policing career? Do you want to be part of policing one of the safest counties in the UK? We want to hear from Detective Constables with a wealth of experience and knowledge.

North Yorkshire is proud to be one of the safest counties in the country and we rely on the skills and experience of our expert colleagues to keep it this way. Could you be one of them? We have a number of immediate opportunities for experienced Detective Constables to join North Yorkshire Police.

We are one of the largest single county forces in England with a unique demand of rural and urban policing challenges and we are looking for community-focused officers who are able to demonstrate a proactive approach to the role. You will bring strong investigative, team working skills as well as first class communication and engagement skills.

We have Detective roles in teams across the force area including the Online Abuse & Exploitation and Organised Crime Teams, and there are immediate vacancies in the CID Teams at York and Harrogate. If you have aspirations to join one of our specialist teams, please let us know as part of your application, and we will work towards supporting those aspirations in order to help you develop an exciting career with North Yorkshire Police.

Our Detectives work alongside uniformed colleagues on a new ‘4-on 4-off’ shift pattern, which means a combination of day and late shifts with occasional Force night cover. This alignment further enhances the NYP “One Team” ethos and facilitates better work-life balance for colleagues who aspire to become specialist investigators.

If you’re a PIP2 accredited Detective, or a constable who has recently passed the NIE course then we are really keen to hear from you!  If you would like the opportunity to speak to a member of the team and find out more about these unique opportunities, please e-mail hrtalent&

Officers who are interested in transferring to other specialist roles are still encouraged to apply and if successful will be placed on a holding list for consideration in the future.

We view diversity as fundamental to our success. To tackle today’s complex policing challenges; we need a workforce made up from all of North Yorkshire’s communities. Applications from across the community are therefore essential. You will need a wide range of skills and experiences which will enhance the services we deliver to the public including an understanding of cultural issues. If this is you, we want to hear from you!
