Police Officer Recruitment Update - February 2016

West Yorkshire Police is planning a Police Officer recruitment campaign in the New Year following conversations with the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

It follows the recent announcement that further cuts on the scale anticipated (25%-40%) would not be made to Policing budgets under the Government Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR).

West Yorkshire Police Temporary Chief Constable Dee Collins said "The change in circumstances will enable the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Force to now commence some initial recruitment".
