Our Culture

We strive to create and maintain an organisation with a culture that enables people to flourish.

Our ambition to make Staffordshire Police a great place to work is rooted in our policing plan, forming one of the four key pillars.

We know that to deliver on this policing priority and to build on the hard work that has led to success so far, the people of Staffordshire Police are critical to challenging, modernising and adapting the way we do things.

We are committed to enhancing the wellbeing of our people in a supportive workplace where people are engaged, feel valued and motivated to do their best.

Training and Development

To enable you to reach your full potential – whether that’s within a current role or one you might progress to – it’s important you have opportunities to learn and enhance your skill set. We invest in our people to provide training and development opportunities and regularly review these in line with force priorities to ensure we have the capability to meet the challenges and demands we face, head on. Development opportunities can range from training modules to formal qualifications and can be delivered through internal training teams, external contractors, tutors on-the-job and by IT based learning.
