This is one of the most significant, challenging and rewarding police leadership roles in the UK, and offers an unparalleled opportunity to make a positive difference to people’s lives and to help shape Scotland’s future.

We are committed to developing a diverse workforce and to promoting an organisational culture where everyone is treated with dignity, fairness and respect. We particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in Police Scotland in order to better serve our diverse communities.
