Lothian and Borders Police

Lothian and Borders PoliceWe face policing challenges in a broad variety of environments, from the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh, housing the Scottish Parliament and hosting major sporting and cultural events, to the expanding towns and villages of our outlying counties with their many local festivals, parades and rural issues.

Lothian and Borders Police are committed to building upon the trust and confidence of our communities to ensure that everyone can benefit from our service. We recognise that this can only be achieved if we recruit and develop a workforce that reflects the diversity of our 21st Century multicultural Scotland

Our Police officers are assisted by administrators, forensic scientists, personnel officers, scene of crime officers and many more support staff.
A forensic scientist at work – just one of our support staff careers.

As an employer of choice, our benefits package includes secure final salary pensions, generous holidays and family leave, flexible working, career development opportunities, child care voucher scheme, BUPA health checks, travel pass loan scheme and much more. An officer who transferred recently from Yorkshire into a senior management position in this Force commented;

Lothian and Borders Police covers one of the most diverse areas in Scotland."I joined West Yorkshire Police 17 years ago having moved to England from Pakistan with my family when I was seven.

I have had a great career in the police, working in many operational roles, Criminal Investigation and a two-year specialised posting to the Home Office. I applied to transfer to Lothian and Borders Police because of its reputation of being a first class employer that genuinely values the diversity of its staff, in providing a quality of service to the community they serve and because of the excellent career opportunities the force offers all of its staff.

My family have chosen to relocate to Edinburgh to enjoy a quality of life that cannot be bettered. Those opportunities that I’ve benefited from are there for you too. Come and see what the police can offer in terms of a highly rewarding career".

We welcome applications for all our posts, especially from readers of this website.

Serving an increasingly diverse local population, we are trying to attract people from all walks of life, especially those who may not previously have considered the police services as a career choice. In addition we welcome people looking to transfer from other Forces.

 Help us to change the face of our  police service.
