Police Now

Is it fair that if a boy has a father with a criminal conviction, there’s a 70% chance he’ll end up with one too? And if it’s a mother and daughter, the chances are higher.

Police Now’s mission is to transform communities, reduce crime and increase the public’s confidence in policing, by recruiting and developing outstanding and diverse individuals to be leaders in society and on the policing frontline.

Police Now’s award-winning two-year National Graduate Leadership Programme

Our programme offers outstanding graduates the opportunity to become a fully warranted neighbourhood police officer. You’ll get to know your community and use innovative ideas to tackle the toughest problems and create safe, confident communities in which people can thrive. 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. And at the end of the programme you have the option of staying in policing or using you highly sought-after skills elsewhere.

For our 2019 programme we’ll be working with the following forces, giving you plenty of options to break the intergenerational cycle of crime in the most challenged areas of England and Wales:

  • Avon & Somerset Constabulary
  • Cambridgeshire Constabulary
  • Derbyshire Constabulary
  • Essex Police
  • Greater Manchester Police
  • Hertfordshire Constabulary
