About Police Now
Police Now is a charity with a mission to transform communities, reduce crime and increase the public’s confidence in policing, by recruiting and developing an outstanding and diverse group of individuals to be leaders in society and policing.
We currently offer two programmes for graduates.
Police Now’s National Detective Programme has just launched and is a two year programme where graduates are developed into innovators, challengers and solvers, to become detectives and effectively manage threat and harm to victims and communities. Applications are now open and will close on 30 April 2019.
Police Now's award winning National Graduate Leadership Programme is a two year programme where participants become fully warranted neighbourhood police officers and focus on long-term problem solving in the most deprived areas of the UK. Applications for our 2019 programme are now closed and will re-open in August 2019 for our 2020 intake.
Police Now is committed to bringing diverse thinkers into the policing space. We celebrate the ability of participants to be game changers for the communities they serve. The diversity of Police Now participants has underpinned the rapid impact Police Now has achieved on society. Analysis of young people’s attitudes towards the police shows a 17% increase in confidence in communities with a Police Now participant compared to similar communities without one. We’re changing the story. Join us.
