FOR LATEST INFORMATION ON CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO SERVING POLICE OFFICERS, PLEASE VISIT THE NEOF 'APPLY NOW' PAGE.
If you are a serving police officer in a Home Department Police Force or other policing organisation (i.e. BTP/CNC/Ports/PSNI/Police Scotland) and you have completed an approved probationer training programme, the MDP can provide new options for developing your career.
Upon joining the MDP as a New Entrant from Other Forces (NEOF) you will be required to undertake an induction course, achieve Authorised Firearms Officer (AFO) status and you will be subject to a 12-month probationary period.
You will be allowed to count your previous police service for annual leave entitlement purposes provided there is no break in service, and you will be placed on the MDP equivalent pay spine as determined by the length of service you have completed in your previous force(s) at contract offer stage. Housing allowance is not offered to NEOF applicants who join the MDP. Further information is available on the Pay & Benefits page.
Successful applicants will be required to attend a 1-day assessment process consisting of a suitability interview, fitness test and a medical assessment (including a drug and alcohol test). You will also be subject to the Force Vetting/Security process that applies to all new entrants.
