National Black Police Association

Experienced Superintendents and suitably qualified Chief Inspectors

We’re looking for inspirational leaders to join our team and help us continue to place Kent Police at the forefront of UK policing. We have opportunities for experienced  Superintendents and suitably qualified Chief Inspectors seeking promotion.

Kent itself is a fantastic place to live and work and offers a great mix of both urban and rural policing opportunities.  As well as having one of the busiest road networks our geographic location – between London and Europe – also means we have a significant part to play in both national and international policing.

Both the county and our strong leadership ethos can provide you the platform you need to take your career to new heights.

Sound interesting?

We want to hear from dynamic, innovative and operationally credible leaders who are committed to improving service delivery.

If you’re truly passionate about leading people and developing partnerships to better the policing service consider #TeamKent and become #MoreThanTheBadge.
