91% of participants from last years’ academy said they felt the quality of support they’d received from fellow participants was excellent.
While completing the Police Now Academy, you’ll be introduced to your chosen force, giving you the chance to meet key contacts and complete elements of your training. After completing your academy, you will spend the remainder of your two-year Police Now programme with your force.
At this point you’ll be assigned to a specific community within your chosen forces’ jurisdiction, completing your training alongside police mentors and serving police officers from that force.
Your Police Now Leadership Development Officer will work with you over the entire two-year programme to mentor and develop your leadership skills.
They will help you set achievable but challenging objectives for the work you’ll do over each 100-day period, which culminates with an Impact Event where you will share examples of you work and hear about other participants experiences. You’ll work day-to-day with police mentors from your force and alongside serving police detectives who will also help you to achieve your impact objectives.
