Come to Wiltshire. Everything you are looking for and more

Small is beautiful. One of the smallest, and oldest, county police forces in the country, we pride ourselves on looking after our people, our wellness culture is central to everything we do, and our passion is to deliver outstanding service to the public.

Wiltshire is a large mainly rural county, from the sweeping Salisbury Plain and Stonehenge, to the vibrant urban communities of Swindon, Trowbridge, Chippenham and Melksham and the historic centres of Malmesbury and Salisbury.    Plus, the fantastic links to Bath and Bristol and right on the doorstep the picturesque Cotswolds.

It’s a wonderful place to live and work.
