Four month secondments for Police Constables to Guernsey Police

A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for Police Constables with a minimum of three years operational experience to take up a secondment with Guernsey Police between 3rd January 2022 and 2nd April 2022.

Successful applicants will undertake frontline operational uniformed work on 24/7 Response Teams and must be trained and accredited response drivers as well as in date with their JRFT, Officer Safety Training and First Aid. Full criteria for applicants can be found in the application pack.

Guernsey Police will provide accommodation with meals included, with access to gym and fitness facilities. They will also ensure that appropriate induction and training is given at the start of the secondment. Travel at the start and end of secondments will be paid, with an additional travel payment to be negotiated with individual officers depending on their personal circumstances.

Guernsey, a Crown Dependency, is the second largest of the Channel Islands, covering an area of 30 square miles with a population of around 65,000. It has some of Britain's finest and best-kept beaches, a mild and sunny climate even in winter and the historic town of St. Peter Port which boasts the title of the prettiest harbour town in Europe. However despite being a very nice place in which to live and work, there are similar policing demands as there are in many areas of the UK.

Guernsey Police works as a small UK Constabulary in terms of all policing responsibilities and works closely with the College of Policing under APP and a number of UK Forces have provided specialist support. Applicants from forces who use the 'Niche' system would be an advantage as this platform is used locally for incident and crime recording purposes.

You can find out more about island life at www.visitguernsey.com and www.locateguernsey.com.


Guernsey has fared well during the pandemic in terms of the impact upon the community, but Guernsey Police has witnessed considerable disruption to its training and recruitment programmes.  Local recruitment is on-going but it will take a number of months to filter through. In order to accommodate mandatory training and allow new officers to be trained, support is needed for front line response and operational policing. Seconded officers will be working as part of a five-shift system dealing with local policing demand.

Officers must have the support of their Departmental Head (Superintendent Level) and their Chief Officer Team before applying. Applicants must also be able to be released for the required dates as shown above. A number of days at the beginning of the secondment will be dedicated to induction training and local familiarisation.


For further information regarding this secondment please contact Christelle Carpy at Guernsey Police:


or Superintendent Damian Kitchen at NPoCC: damian.kitchen@npocc.police.uk

Applications with the appropriate local approval should be forwarded to the following email address:



The closing date for applications is Friday 10th December 2021 at 4pm. All applications will be subject to an initial paper review by Guernsey Police and a short list of applicants will be drawn up. One to one interviews will be undertaken via video or 'MS Teams' links. The timescales for application and selection are very tight so applicants are asked to submit their applications in a timely way as possible.
