Avon and Somerset Police

Avon and Somerset Police is a progressive and caring organisation of over 6,000 people. As the seventh largest police force in England and Wales, we serve a population of more than 1.65 million, across a large and diverse area.

Avon and Somerset Police are committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Our mission is to serve our communities. The most effective way we can do this is if the people who work for us are representative of our communities.

We are working hard to increase diversity and inclusion where communities are currently under-represented. This includes:

  • those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities
  • people of all ages, abilities, neurodiversity, faiths, religions, gender, LGBT+ communities
  • those from other disadvantaged backgrounds or marginalised backgrounds

We want to encourage people of diverse backgrounds, experience and beliefs, who share our value of caring and want to make a difference in the community, to work for us.

We believe in empowering our people to make decisions and see individuality as a strength.

We are a courageous organisation which is committed to learning. Innovation is at the heart of what we do and we are always searching for new ways to help our people perform at their best, whether that is through the latest tech, pioneering different approaches or training and personal development.
