Met Police offers part-time work to new constables

The Metropolitan Police is to recruit part-time constables in a bid to attract more women to join the force.

The BBC reports that from November all new constable recruits will be able to choose between full-time or part-time working hours.

The move follows the Met’s own research, which showed full-time working hours had put some women off from considering a career in the police.

Up until now all new police constable recruits were expected to complete their training and probationary training period on a full-time basis before they could apply for part-time working.
