Durham Constabulary has a strict vetting requirement and any offer of employment will be subject to appropriate vetting levels which will be maintained/updated throughout the period of service.  In addition, applicants should have been a UK resident for at least 3 years prior to the date of application. However in the event that applicants have not been resident in the UK for at least 3 years  and can provide a VERIFIABLE certificate from the Police of any country where they have taken temporary residence to indicate that they have not been convicted of any offence whilst in that country or involved in any investigation by a Law Enforcement Agency which includes being interviewed, arrested, issued with any penalty notice, charged or cautioned irrespective of whether that offence is an offence within the United Kingdom, then this will be considered as part of the recruitment vetting process. Individuals who are not able to meet this criteria will be subject to appropriate risk assessment by the Force Counter Corruption & Vetting Unit.
