We have a strong commitment to equality and diversity both within the organisation and in the service we provide. Our aim is to promote and achieve a fully inclusive workforce to reflect the communities we serve.  We recognise and value individuals’ unique differences, and we want South Wales Police to continue to develop as an organisation which represents and reflects our communities.

In order to provide a high level of service, we encourage applications from under-represented groups and we are proud to pursue a policy of ‘positive action’ in an attempt to achieve this.

‘Positive action’ refers to a range of measures and initiatives that employers can lawfully take to actively encourage individuals from under-represented groups to apply.

Please note: Our selection procedure itself is no different, and is based solely on merit. ‘Positive action’ does not seek to remove competition and South Wales Police will always take the best applicants.

If you would like to speak with someone about forthcoming recruitment campaigns, opportunities and support available to you, please contact our representative workforce team at Joinus@south-wales.pnn.police.uk.

Police officer

Every day is different but preventing and detecting crime and making the people in South Wales feel safer will always be the main responsibility. Regular duties include responding to emergencies, detaining offenders, supporting victims and acting on intelligence.

Police community support officer (PCSO)

PCSOs are the vital link between the community and the Police. They divert young people from crime, provide reassurance to vulnerable people and decrease the fear of crime. They deal with Anti-Social Behaviour, offer crime prevention advice and gather intelligence.

Special constable

Special constables are volunteer police officers who play a vital role in South Wales Police. They have the same powers as regular police officers and bring skills and experiences from to the role. They give back to their community and make a real contribution to policing.

PSC call handler

This role requires individuals who can work under pressure, prioritise workloads and use their initiative. They must provide a good quality and prompt service to the public we serve.

Police staff

Just as important as the front line officers is the team of professional police staff working behind the scenes. They make vital contributions at every level of every department. There is something for just about everyone, regardless of skills and experience.
