Press release

Why is Police Now’s mission so important right now?

The mission for Police Now is very timely, it’s really important that the police work really hard to become a representative workforce for the communities and society in which they work, to be able to understand communities, work better with communities, engage not just with victims and suspects but the community as a whole to improve not just the image of policing but also the work we do.

Police Now’s mission really drives that forward.
