Police recruitment homepage error?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Its been a few years since i last looked into Police recruitment and things have certainly changed! im wondering if anyone can help with the following link:


I have searched high and low and cannot for the life of me find the link that used to let you select a drop down of all forces, this then in turn informed you if they were recruiting or not and download the application form if they were.

I'm working on a MAC, It may be visible on a windows based system? can someone let me know.

Im a bit confused in that the Avon and Somerset site directs you to http://policerecruitment.homeoffice.gov.uk/index.html but then they almost point you back to the forces website.

Any help would be appreciated

cupracraig, I cannot see any drop down list either. I should imaging the site is defunct as the government is trying to get rid of officers, not recruit more.

That website hasn't worked since mid 2010

They moved it from policecouldyou.co.uk to the home office website, but it looks like they only copied the text and didn't make things like the drop down list work...

It was part of the government's plan to save money - by moving everything over to one of a few central websites - e.g. direct.gov.uk, home office, etc, etc

A fine example of how not to move a website...
