Age – 18 to 57

You must be 18 or over when you apply to be a new Police Constable. The upper age limit is, typically, 57. This is three years less than the compulsory retirement age of 60 and allows for the two year probationary period and the expectation of a minimum of one year of service following probation.

Cautions, Convictions and Vetting

Ideally, you shouldn’t have a criminal conviction or cautions record. If you do have one, acceptance will depend on the age and nature of the offence. The Met is unable to state whether your convictions record will affect your application before you apply. This will be determined from the full and confidential information provided during the recruitment and selection process.

If you don’t tell us about any cautions, investigations or criminal convictions that may be linked to you at an early stage, your application could be refused simply because you weren’t being open and up front. It might have been accepted if you were. So if in doubt, disclose. To assist we have produced a short guide about cautions, convictions and vetting which you can download here.

Eyesight Requirements

The standard you need to meet either with or without spectacles or contact lenses is:

Distance vision

• 6/12 or better with either your right or left eye
• 6/6 with both eyes together
• If you wear spectacles or contact lenses you also need to reach 6/36 without your spectacles or lenses.
Near vision

Colour vision

The use of colour correcting lenses is not acceptable. Severe colour vision deficiencies (monochromacy) are not acceptable. Mild anomalous trichromacy is acceptable. Severe anomalous dichromacy or trichromacy is also acceptable but you will need to be aware of the deficiency and make appropriate adjustments.

Eye surgery

Radial keratotomy, arcuate keratotomy or corneal grafts are not acceptable. Other forms of refractive surgery such as LASIK, LASEK, PRK, ICRS and epiflap are all acceptable provided that six weeks have elapsed since surgery, there are no residual side effects and the other eyesight standards are met. You may be asked to provide a report from an optician.

You may have seen a chart like the diagram below at your optician’s. The actual chart is much larger and is read from a distance of six metres. Each line equates to a standard.

Financial Position

It’s important that you’re not under pressure from un-discharged debts or liabilities and that you can manage loans and debts sensibly.

This contradicts everything the role of a police officer stands for – if you are currently using any illegal drugs, this will rule you out of the recruitment process automatically.

We are temporarily extending the opportunity to join the Met and ‘Do Something Real’ to non-Londoners, as part of our drive to recruit more than 2,500 officers. This provides a real opportunity for those living outside of London to fulfil their ambition of working for the Met. This will be a time limited opportunity, and will run in parallel to our existing drive to encourage more Londoners to join.

If you have any previous drugs related cautions or convictions, please look at the Cautions, Convictions and Vetting section on this page.

• on your hands
• on the back of your neck
• below your collar line
• on your ears
• behind your ears
Sometimes we’ll require you to cover up these tattoos for policing events such as state funerals or ceremonial events.

• Even if you have tattoos in the allowed places, we can’t allow you to join the Met if any of the tattoos could be considered:
• discriminatory
• offensive
• violent
• rude
• lewd
• crude
• racist
• sexist
• sectarian

• intimidating
• political in nature
Tattoos like this aren’t compatible with the values of the Met.

If you apply for a role with us, we’ll ask you to declare information about your tattoos. When we meet we’ll check that you comply with our tattoo policy.

Age – 18 to 57

You must be 18 or over when you apply to be a new Police Constable. The upper age limit is, typically, 57. This is three years less than the compulsory retirement age of 60 and allows for the two year probationary period and the expectation of a minimum of one year of service following probation.

Cautions, Convictions and Vetting

Ideally, you shouldn’t have a criminal conviction or cautions record. If you do have one, acceptance will depend on the age and nature of the offence. The Met is unable to state whether your convictions record will affect your application before you apply. This will be determined from the full and confidential information provided during the recruitment and selection process.

If you don’t tell us about any cautions, investigations or criminal convictions that may be linked to you at an early stage, your application could be refused simply because you weren’t being open and up front. It might have been accepted if you were. So if in doubt, disclose. To assist we have produced a short guide about cautions, convictions and vetting which you can download here.

Eyesight Requirements

The standard you need to meet either with or without spectacles or contact lenses is:

Distance vision

• 6/12 or better with either your right or left eye
• 6/6 with both eyes together
• If you wear spectacles or contact lenses you also need to reach 6/36 without your spectacles or lenses.
Near vision

• 6/9 with both eyes together [aided].
Colour vision

The use of colour correcting lenses is not acceptable. Severe colour vision deficiencies (monochromacy) are not acceptable. Mild anomalous trichromacy is acceptable. Severe anomalous dichromacy or trichromacy is also acceptable but you will need to be aware of the deficiency and make appropriate adjustments.

Eye surgery

Radial keratotomy, arcuate keratotomy or corneal grafts are not acceptable. Other forms of refractive surgery such as LASIK, LASEK, PRK, ICRS and epiflap are all acceptable provided that six weeks have elapsed since surgery, there are no residual side effects and the other eyesight standards are met. You may be asked to provide a report from an optician.

You may have seen a chart like the diagram below at your optician’s. The actual chart is much larger and is read from a distance of six metres. Each line equates to a standard.

Financial Position

It’s important that you’re not under pressure from un-discharged debts or liabilities and that you can manage loans and debts sensibly.
