Cheshire Constabulary


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly. In the last year, Cheshire Constabulary’s first Armed Forces Reservist Policy was published, the process for recruiting service leavers was re-examined and the support of veterans’ charities continued. The review was so significant that the Chief Constable, already a signatory of the covenant, thought it appropriate to re-sign it. Cheshire Constabulary is one of the 3,000 forces friendly employers committed to support its employees who have served or serve in the armed forces, as well as members of the armed forces community within Cheshire – regular personnel, reservists, veterans, their spouses and bereaved members of the service personnel families. Cheshire Constabulary is proud to say we have been awarded with the Employer Recognition Gold Award. This demonstrates our commitment to supporting our armed forces community by ensuring they are not unfairly disadvantaged by any part of the recruitment and selection process.

About us

In the autumn of 1856, the Court of Quarter Sessions set up a special committee of Justices to advise on the application of the County and Borough Police Act 1856. The Justices were now obliged to establish a paid police force for the whole of each county. Cheshire Constabulary covers a diverse rural and urban area moving up to Warrington in the north, Chester in the west, Macclesfield in the east and down to Crewe in the South of the county. We have a wide variety of opportunities across the county in both frontline officer roles and police staff opportunities.
