Leicestershire Police welcome new recruits
A number of new police officers were sworn in at a ceremony in Leicestershire Police headquarters on Wednesday (July 29) last week.
The 32 new officers all come from a mix of different backgrounds. Their previous careers were in areas including hospitality, the military, support work, the prison service, retail, teaching and journalism.
However, some of the new recruits were formally PCSOs, contact handlers and special officers who successfully completed the police officer recruitment process.
