Cheshire Police will be offering a limited number of places for young people to take part in its work experience week.
Successful applicants, who must be in Year 10, 11 or sixth form, will be given the opportunity to try their hand at the variety of roles available within the force.
To be considered for one of the places, pupils will be asked to explain, in no more than 250 words, what policing means to them and why they would like to attend the work experience placement.
The placements will take place from Monday 1 July to Friday 5 July.
Application forms can be downloaded from the Cheshire Police website and should be returned by Monday 21 January 2013.
