Alumni Hub

Police Now alumni

Welcome to the Alumni Hub, a space for all Police Now alumni and participants from our programmes to find out what support is on offer when you graduate.

We believe that officers have the biggest potential to transform policing and communities through collective action and being supported in the next steps of their careers.

As Police Now alumni you will receive ongoing career and progression support from our Alumni and Ambassadors team. We have a team of Alumni Officers who are on hand to offer 1-2-1 support, in whichever capacity you would find useful and they can be contacted towards the end of your programme and beyond.  

Career progression

We have a Progression team which is there to support our alumni to get promoted. We currently offer support for the sergeant and inspector promotion process and the College of Policing’s Fast Track programme.

Frontline Leadership Programme

Our Frontline Leadership Programme is available to any alumni who have achieved Full Operational Competence and is a one year blended-learning experience aimed at officers who wish to become sergeants. The programme supports successful applicants to navigate the promotion process, improve their operational competence and prepare for leadership by equipping them with the right skills to be exceptional leaders.

Alumni networks

Our alumni networks are a space to connect with other officers from different forces across the country. There are a variety of networks our alumni can join which are already established, from our National Policing Drugs Network to our Sergeants’ Support Network.  

We also support alumni to set up their own networks, and welcome ideas from the alumni community on what these should be.
