Transferee Opportunities

Join Humberside Police

16 Feb 2021

It’s a big decision, choosing to move your family for the job you love.

So you’ll need to ask yourself a few important questions:

  • Do you want to be part of a family force that values your opinion, gives you the ability to specialise and has good promotion opportunities?
  • Do you want to bring your family up in a low crime area, surrounded by good schools?
  • Are you someone who loves a good independent café and bar scene, access to free museums and a vibrant nightlife?
  • Can you see yourself exploring the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds or the sandy beach at Cleethorpes Pier?

If your answer is yes to all of these, then you need to think about joining Humberside Police.
