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.

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.

Health & Fitness

While you don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to be a Police Constable, you must be able to cope with the physical and mental demands of the job. Certain medical conditions may prevent this. To find out more, please download our Fit for the Job guide.

Membership to BNP or similar groups

We won’t accept applications from anyone who is, or has been, a member of the BNP or similar organisations.

Nationality

If you’re from outside the EEA, it’s essential that you have leave to enter or to remain in the UK for an indefinite period.

Other Applications

You’re only able to apply to one police force/service at a time. Your application will not be accepted if you have previously applied unsuccessfully, in the last six months, to another police force/service in England and Wales that requires candidates to undertake the Police SEARCH Recruit Assessment Centre.

Residency

You must have resided in the United Kingdom for a minimum of three years prior to applying. If you’ve lived abroad due to serving in the British armed forces or on UK Government Service, you’re considered to have been resident in the UK. We ordinarily have a residency criteria that means our Police Constables need to have lived in London for a minimum of three years, within the last six. 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.

Substance Misuse

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

Tattoos

This tattoo policy is new from October 2018, and significantly different to our previous policy. If you weren’t eligible to work with us in the past because of your tattoos, you may now be allowed to work for the Met and consider applying for roles.

Some tattoos will stop you working for the Met. You can’t work for the Met if you have tattoos on:

• the sides and front of your neck above the collar line
• your face
You will be allowed to work for the Met if you have tattoos:

• on your hands
• on the back of your neck
• below your collar line
• on your ears
• behind your ears
