Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hamilton said: “We are looking for people who want to make a positive contribution to Northern Ireland and are committed to making a difference.

“We know from our previous campaigns that people from across Northern Ireland want to join the Police Service.

“To ensure that potential candidates have all the information they need we are hosting three familiarisation events taking place on October 10 in Belfast, Londonderry and Omagh.
