Our People

Durham Constabulary's 1,151 officers are supported by more than 1,003 members of police staff, 70 special constables and 145 police community support officers.

(Figures as of May 2018) 

The force's long established 'Aiming For Excellence' philosophy ensures that all staff realise what is expected of them and are able to contribute to on-going improvements in service to communities.

  
All officers and staff are ambassadors for the force and are encouraged in their dealings with the public to ensure they make "every contact count."
 
They do this by being helpful, polite, approachable, professional and proud to provide a good service. They are also positive about the force, take personal responsibility, provide regular informative updates and treat people as they would want their family or friends to be treated. 
 
Our WOW! nominations highlight specific examples of good customer service provided by our officers and staff.
