About Police Now

Police Now’s mission is to transform communities by recruiting, developing and inspiring diverse leaders in policing.

We recruit graduates who go on to play a crucial role in creating safer communities across England and Wales, working proactively to tackle some of society’s most complex challenges so that even the most vulnerable can thrive.

Equipping participants with core policing skills, our two-year national graduate programmes help develop leadership, communication and problem-solving skills that will serve graduates, and the wider community, for a lifetime.

National Graduate Leadership Programme

Our National Graduate Leadership Programme trains and develops graduates to become leaders in neighbourhood policing. Participants are placed in some of the most challenging communities in England and Wales, getting to know the issues up close and developing innovative ideas and techniques to tackle the challenges residents are facing.

Positive, relatable and diverse, neighbourhood police officers raise the quality of life for those most affected by crime and increase the public’s confidence in policing. Neighbourhood police officers are the face of their communities. Committed to change, you’ll make decisions that have real, lasting impact in communities and in the police service.

National Detective Programme

Our National Detective Programme is designed to equip graduates with the core policing skills required in modern investigative work. Throughout the two-year programme participants play an important part in solving crimes while developing leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills.

Successful candidates will be tactical and resilient focusing on working towards defined goals, rarely losing focus – the tenacity you bring to your role as a detective will help you deliver on these key attributes. You’ll critically analyse information and collaborate with others, combining insight and evidence to define root causes of some of the UK’s most complex problems/scenarios.
