FAQs for our Partners
Below are a number of FAQS for our Partners or for those who are considering partnering with Police Now.
Since April 2016, Police Now has been an independent registered social enterprise. Being independent enables us to build partnerships and operate more effectively than might otherwise be possible. Police Now is able to build trust with people who have historically been doubtful of the policing establishment and/or government, and at the same time can provide support and honest critique to these institutions. By existing outside of the policing establishment, Police Now is exceedingly nimble and able to respond to the demands of both policing and the market.
Police Now is funded by a combination of fees paid by forces and grants from government. We are also developing a range of other funding streams, including from corporate partners. As a charitably registered social enterprise all funding that Police Now receives is invested directly in enabling us to achieve our mission of community transformation, reducing crime and increasing the public’s confidence in policing.
Yes – we occasionally seek value in kind donations to add value to our Police Now head office operations. If you would be interested in exploring such means of non-financial support, please email [email protected]
No. Since all of Police Now’s efforts go into recruiting and training excellent officers who then join the various forces that partner with us, any public money that is allocated to the programme ends up benefiting the police forces themselves. In addition, Police Now works to secure alternative streams of funding from corporate donations, trusts and foundations in order to reduce the ask for public money.
