More than 150 people attended the first apprentice recruitment event held by Lancashire Constabulary.

The event, in conjunction with North Lancashire Training Group, saw more than 150 people attend from all across the county to hear about the various new apprentice roles available at Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters and the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner.

Young people aged between 16 and 23 were invited to listen to a range of speakers from the National Apprenticeship Service, North Lancashire Training and existing apprentices on the benefits of joining the force, what the roles entail in which department and what is expected from interested recruits.

Lancashire Constabulary’s recruitment manager Louise Miller started herself as an apprentice 34 years ago with British Gas and joined Lancashire Police 21 years ago. She said: “Lancashire Police is a fantastic place to work, whether you are full time or a volunteer.

“Hopefully what the young people saw and heard at the event will inspire them to sign up.”

Clive Grunshaw, Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire, added: “This is a really great opportunity for two talented apprentices to come and work with my office. “
