  1. Police Now to hold conference today. Participants in a previous Police Now class Confidence in the police has increased by 17 per cent among young people in communities that have a neighbourhood police officer recruited and trained through the Police Now scheme. A survey commissioned by the charity in areas it operates found: a 10 pc increase in young people’s perceptions of how fairly the police treat people; a 13 pc increase in how helpful they are; an 11 pc increase in how friendly and approachable they are; a 10 pc increase of how good an understanding they have of key community issues. Independent survey data for Police Now and comparison wards was compared for the year prior to the posting of Police Now officers, against their first 15 months after training. Around 7,000 people were questioned in total, including around 1,000 youngsters. Police Now, which puts graduates into demanding neighbourhood policing roles, was established as an independent charity by the Met Police in August 2015. It is now a partner of almost half of forces in England and Wales, with more than 200 new officers being placed into wards in deprived communities this summer. At a conference organised by the charity today, Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick will say: “Police Now has been an enormously successful way to bring different people into policing. The people in the places that Police Now participants are working are not just more confident in the police but more trusting of each other.” Home Secretary Amber Rudd says in a report on the programme: “Through Police Now, officers and their local partners are changing the face of community policing in some of the country’s toughest neighbourhoods whilst strengthening the historic British principle of policing by consent. “Police Now continues to develop fresh approaches to police training and leadership development and is having a broader impact on the development of policing as a profession.” David Spencer, chief executive and co-founder of the initiative, said: “Police Now is bringing the best graduates into policing - our participants are changing lives and have an unparalleled opportunity to develop their leadership and problem-solving skills on the policing frontline. "We are incredibly proud of what our participants have achieved over the last two years.” Applications for the next round of Police Now open later this year. Red Snapper Learning, which shares a parent company with Police Oracle, is delivering some of the training for participants in this year’s programme. View on Police Oracle
  2. Hi guys, I've just finished my degree and I'm thinking about joining my local police force as an officer. I'm currently in the process of becoming a special which should give me a good taste for it, however I have a few questions in the meantime... 1) Does having a good degree behind you carry much weight in terms of your career progression? 2) Roughly how many years would you need to spend in uniform before having a realistic chance of being able to specialise? 3) Once you have specialised, is it possible to move from one branch to another? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
  3. Hello, I know there are other posts regarding assessment days but I thought I'd start a new one to save me and hopefully others scrolling through vast amounts of posts!! So I got the call yesterday to say I've made it through to the Assessment day (which for me will be November 28th) for the Police Now graduate programme. To say I'm nervous would be an understatement!! I've had various applications and interviews with the police before and been let down a few times so am really keen to go into this one fully prepared and determined to get the job which I am! I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips about the day in general or about these things which they've told us will happen: 1. Role Play (I believe this is very customer service based) 2. Presentation (no idea about this!) 3. Numerical and Verbal Reasoning assessments 4. Competency based interview (Am I right in thinking this will be like other interviews I've had with the Police in the past?) 5. In tray analysis test Also anyone else out there who has made it through to the assessment day for Police Now? :) Thanks , Jo
  4. Hi folks, first time poster on here and just looking for a quick bit of advice. I have always had a keen interest in working within the police service. I am due to graduate the summer of 2015 (Finance and Economics). I have been searching around the internet to try and find some information about graduate opportunities within the police service but can't seem to find very much information. I stay just outside Glasgow and so iv checked the police Scotland website, again there doesn't seem to be many specific opportunities regarding graduates. Is this because there are simply no graduate programs or any other jobs specifically designed for graduates ? I have found some information on these types of programs in England and Wales but I just can't seem to find much information regarding police Scotland. If anyone could offer any advice regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much. Jamie.
