As a neighbourhood officer your role is to see the bigger picture. A large part of your role will involve working well with others: fellow officers, community members, safeguarding agencies, and other community resources. You’ll need to understand all of the tools at your disposal to come up with the best short, medium and long term solutions for your community. You’ll take your information about the community, and innovate new solutions together, prioritising the best course of action to create lasting change.
This is your chance to experience collaboration with colleagues in neighbourhoods and across other services and departments, and our chance to see how you assess, prioritise and collaborate with others.
It may seem like common sense, but arming yourself with the knowledge of the role, and what your day-to-day role as a neighbourhood police officer would involve can give you a clear vision of what we will be expecting in the team meeting.
