CHESHIRE Police has announced it is launching a recruitment drive for new officers and a fast track course for inspectors.

Applications open on May 12 and run until May 25.

Successful applicants will be asked to join the force this year, and in 2015.

And police are also looking for people capable of becoming an inspector in three years.
