All Graduate job news
The short supply of application forms may have prevented some individuals searching for a graduate job submitting an application with Lincolnshire Police, the BBC reports.
A recruitment drive by the force was expected to last for a week, but potential applicants were forced to be turned away after only two hours as more than 1,000 packs had already been taken to be filled in.
Senior recruitment officer David Freeman told the news provider that high levels of respondents were expected, but not quite to the level that had been experienced.
He said: "We expected a good level of interest for applications and this has been a fantastic response.
"We are delighted that so many people are interested in joining Lincolnshire Police as police officers, but it is also regrettable that there will be people who are disappointed that they were unable to get an application form."
Lincolnshire Police is expected to offer 60 posts during 2010, which can be applied for by graduates.
The chief executive of the National Policing Improvement Agency, Peter Neyroud, stated last year that changes needed to be made to the long-term career opportunities within forces if graduates were to be attracted.
