This strategy and our Police and Crime Commissioners plan will ensure Suffolk Constabulary continues to focus on being an ever more efficient and resilient organisation, one that is equipped to deal with future challenges, deliver innovative solutions tailored to the circumstances of the county’s diverse communities and is transformational in its approach to preventing harm and promoting public confidence and trust in the service we provide.

We recognise that key to our success is developing excellent leaders throughout every level of our organisation.

Applications are invited from experienced Chief Inspectors and suitably qualified Inspectors who are ambitious and possess a genuine desire to be part of an exciting and forward-thinking organisation.
