Cumbria police look to re-employ retired officers

Date: Friday 1st May 2020

CUMBRIA police are looking to re-employ retired police officers to assist the force in continuing to provide a high standard of policing in the county during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Superintendent Lisa Hogan said: “If you are a retired officer sat at home at the moment and wondering how you can help in the very challenging time we are facing right now, we would really like to hear from you.

“It is of the utmost importance to us that we are able to continue serving the people of Cumbria when they need us the most and your help could be really beneficial to the force and to the public.

“If you would like to find out more information about the scheme, please just send us an email or pick up the phone and we will be happy to answer any questions.”

Pay and annual leave entitlement on reappointment will be at the same level as prior to retiring if returning to the same role, or applicable to the role applied for.

The rejoiners scheme currently only applies to the federated ranks, but applications from superintendents will be considered
