Police Now's two-year Graduate Development Programme is now open for applications! #ChangeTheStory

The Police Now programme trains graduates with leadership potential to be inspirational police officers and outstanding crime fighters. We believe that great police officers, given the highest levels of support and freedom, can contribute to changing lives. We also believe there should be no compromise or delay in boosting the numbers of those exceptional individuals entering policing.

On the Police Now programme, 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 and the problems. And right from the beginning, they are expected to use innovative ideas and tactics to tackle the toughest problems and deliver high-impact results.

Originally incubated within the Metropolitan Police Service, Police Now is now an independent social enterprise. That means we are an organisation that aims to bring about improvements in society rather than profits for our organisation. We are proud to be working nationally with police forces.

As an organisation with an eye towards expanding across the UK, we aim to continue to create more opportunities for outstanding graduates to step forward and change the story, not just today but for generations to come.
