CUMBRIA Police are currently recruiting for more people to join their ranks.

Cumbria Constabulary are currently looking for three permanent members of staff, two temporary, and one part-time to join the force, meaning there are six recruitment opportunities available to the public.

A spokesman said: "If you're looking for a new challenge this year and want to swap the 9-5 to something a little different - join us as a police officer!

"Policing is an exciting and rewarding career and by becoming an officer you can make a real difference in the communities you serve; reducing crime and making people feel safe.

"You could have the skills we need to make a great police officer in Cumbria!

"We have entry routes available for those with a degree, and those without!"

The police work hard to maintain peace and order in the county.
