97% of participants said that they would encourage other graduates to join the Police Now National Detective Programme based on their experience
After completing the academy, participants join their forces
to undertake operational duties, supported by a Police Now Leadership Development Officer as well as in-force colleagues and line managers. Alongside this, participants receive further advanced content and undertake additional assessment throughout the two-year programme. Impact Events, held three times over the duration of the two-year programme, hold participants to account on behalf of the communities they serve whilst providing an opportunity for participants to share learning, hear from experts in the field and present the work they have been doing to peers and colleagues.
After attending the most recent digital Impact Event, Detective Chief Inspector Kearney from North Wales Police said:
“It is great to see the Detectives develop and it shows the programme works”.
Successful participants gain a Level 6 Graduate Diploma in Professional Policing Practice, as well as the Professionalising Investigation Programme Stage 2 accreditation (PIP2), by the end of the two-year programme.
