Manx police begin off-Island recruitment drive

Fri, 16 Oct 2015


Efforts are underway to plug a staff shortage in the police force by recruiting officers from off-Island.

The Isle of Man Constabulary is trying to get established police constables from the UK to transfer here.

Chief Constable Gary Roberts described a recent on-Island recruitment process as a "failed exercise" after just two of the seven new recruits made the grade.

Sergeant Paul Kemp has responsibility for staff development - he believes it wouldn't be much of a transition.

He says they'll target the potential transferals through social media:
