Kent Police is due to open recruitment for new officers from Monday after losing 500 officers from the force due to budget cuts. The successful candidates will have a starting salary of £21,000 and will be provided with training and development. Applications close at 4pm on Friday, August 2.
Ann Barnes, Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, said: `We have already lost 500 officers through natural wastage so it's fantastic news that Kent Police is now able to open the doors and bring in new blood to the organisation.'
