There’s never been a more exciting time to join Durham Constabulary

We offer three entry routes into policing... 


Click on each of the tiles to find out which route is best for you. Whichever route you join the force on you’ll receive the best possible training to fully equip and prepare you for your career. You’ll be employed as an officer from day one, learning alongside experienced officers on the frontline, while earning a competitive salary and, on our PCDA and DHEP routes, working towards a fully-funded degree or graduate diploma in Professional Policing Practice.

Joining as a police constable is just the start of a career that opens up the many opportunities to specialise and develop. On all of our entry routes you will spend the majority of your training on the frontline, working alongside experienced officers, making a difference within your area and putting your learning into practice. 

Don't have a degree? The PCDA is for you.

Already a degree holder? You could be eligible for DHEP.

You're a Professional Policing Degree holder already? This is the route for you.
