You believe in something better

London. It's your city. It's the park you visit when the sun's out. It's the cinema where you watch the latest blockbusters. It's the long bank-holiday weekends spent with your friends. And there's nowhere you love more.

As a Londoner, you're part of something. You never settle for "good" when you can make things better. You always strive to welcome people. And you aspire to help people whenever you can. After all, you live and breathe this place every day. So help protect it.

Become a Police Constable. Because London's a part of you.


Being a full-time officer isn't for everyone. But you can still make a valuable contribution to London by volunteering for the Met as a special constable. To find out more, visit our Special Constable pages on our careers site.
