Graduate Recruitment - Police Now
Police Now’s Graduate Leadership Programme offers outstanding
graduates the opportunity to pursue a highly ambitious vision for
social change. Its aim? To break the intergenerational cycle of
crime in the most challenged areas by creating safe, confident
communities in which people can thrive.
This two-year programme operates at pace and intensity. And the
challenge is unique. Graduates become fully warranted police
officers with responsibility for an area that could be home to as
many as 20,000 people. They get to know their communities – the
problems, the prominent offenders and the crime hotspots within
them. And right from the beginning, they are expected to use
innovative ideas and tactics to tackle the toughest problems and
deliver high-impact results.
The programme is challenging. But graduates are supported by
mentors, coaches and line managers. Frontline training is delivered
by over 40 different experts and a whole range of operational
police officers. And there are opportunities to undertake
prestigious three-week placements with one of Police Now’s partner
organisations, which give graduates exposure to the wide range of
options available to them once they complete the Police Now
This is a challenge that extends beyond the basic mission of the
police to prevent crime and disorder. It’s the chance to be a
leader in society and on the policing frontline.
As the 2017 Police Now cohort is expanding to work with 19 police
forces, it means there are now more opportunities for outstanding
graduates to step forward and change the story, not just today but
for generations to come.
