Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) - Police Constable

Start a career like no other.

As a Police Constable you’ll play a vital role in helping to protect London and its communities. It’s a job that makes a difference to people’s lives every day. Offering a varied and rewarding career with excellent pay, benefits and career progression opportunities, this could be the beginning of an exciting new journey.

Every day is different when you become a PC. You’ll be constantly challenged, you’ll always be learning and you’ll be valued for your contribution to the wider London community. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that what you do will make a real difference to the lives of all those around you and you’ll do all of this alongside a team that will guide and support you.


The Met, like many organisations across all sectors, continues to manage through the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. This has unfortunately had a direct impact on our recruitment of new officers. We have therefore paused the applications for our DHEP pathway for now, whilst we assess the impact of COVID-19 on our recruitment process.

You can find out more on the benefits of this pathway below and register your interest via our talent bank below.

We will contact you when applications for this route reopen.

We are still accepting applications via our Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship route. Find out more
