NEIL Hamilton, Leader of UKIP Wales and AM for Mid & West Wales, is calling on his constituents to consider a new challenge for 2019.
Dyfed-Powys Police is recruiting police officers later this month and Neil Hamilton is urging anyone interested from his Region to apply.
He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people who are considering a rewarding career or just starting out and seeking a new challenge.
“Dyfed-Powys Police is taking on 44 new police constables in 2019. This is a wonderful chance for anyone who is keen to make a difference to their society to apply to join their local force.
“The job of a police officer can be very difficult but also rewarding, throwing up different challenges to be faced every day. Policing is not just about solving crime but making sure we all feel safe on our streets and in our homes.
“This is an excellent chance to be involved in something which can really make a difference both to an individual and their community.”
Applications open on January 28, 2019 until midday on February 15, 2019, and for those who have applied before, the process will look different:
Superintendent Ifan Charles, Head of Learning and Development at Dyfed-Powys Police, said:
“We’ll be using a new online platform that makes the process much quicker. If you’re successful at application stage you can book straight on to the next one.
“The training offered to new recruits has also changed – before applying make sure you know about the new entry routes.
“Police officers make difficult decisions that impact the public every day. They face complex problems and dangerous situations, with growing demands from digital investigation and vulnerable people.
“The new training package is designed with that in mind.
“If you join us you will play a key role in supporting victims and witnesses and providing reassurance to people who have been subjected to crime and antisocial behaviour.
“Many people will look to you for guidance and protection from such experiences.
“You’ll be a person who thrives on challenges, and are willing to work hard to learn the skills necessary for this difficult but critical role.
“This can be a tough and unpredictable job, but it is also an extremely rewarding position.”
The recruitment workshops are aimed at promoting awareness of the role of a police officer, the new entry routes to policing, how to write a successful application form and encouraging applications from under-represented groups.
