The area we are responsible for covers over 2,500 square kilometres (over 965 square miles) and has a population of over one million. There is a rich diversity of communities all with their own policing needs.

Many steps have been taken to bring policing back into the very heart of local communities. Nine neighbourhood policing areas are headed by an inspector whose responsibility is to ensure that their area receives a 24-hour policing service.

Rather than waiting for crimes to be committed, we are working more and more to plan operations and target criminals. Many of these operations, which are aimed at tackling specific problems, involve working in partnership with local residents and other agencies and have proved to be very successful.

Over the years we have forged close working relationships with local communities, other organisations and agencies and we continue to develop and strengthen these partnerships, working together to fight crime and improve the quality of life for everyone.

Whether you're interested in a public-facing policing role or playing your part behind the scenes to help keep our communities safe, we have a range of exciting career options. Do you have what it takes to be part of #TeamLeicestershire?
