Syndicate Lead and Stream Managers
During our six-week Summer Academy, Syndicate Leads and Stream Managers are crucial to the development and training of our participants. They play a key role in the delivering of Police Now’s mission through training, teaching, leading and mentoring participants through their first steps to becoming a neighbourhood police officer.
Syndicate Leads and Stream Managers are seconded operational Sergeants and Inspectors from our partner police forces and come with the participants to help them learn the basics of being a neighbourhood police officer. They bring the expertise of being an operational police officer and share their lived experience of the role.
Here is a list of which forces we are partnered with this year:
- Avon and Somerset Constabulary
- Bedfordshire Police
- Cambridgeshire Constabulary
- Essex Police
- Greater Manchester Police
- Hertfordshire Constabulary
- Humberside Police
- Lancashire Constabulary
- Metropolitan Police Service
- North Yorkshire Police
- Northumbria Police
- South Yorkshire Police
- Staffordshire Police
- Surrey Police
- Sussex Police
- West Mercia Police
- West Midlands Police
“Syndicate Leads are one of the single biggest reasons for the success of the Police Now programmes and our academies. The Police Now Academies are a hugely intensive start to the two-year Police Now programme where we aim to prepare our participants to become highly able police officers with a real focus on solving entrenched problems and making a real difference as leaders in local communities.
As a PC, Sergeant or Inspector taking on the role of Syndicate Lead, you will play an integral part in developing and shaping those joining policing through the Police Now programme to ensure that they are well prepared to join the police service. As well as having the opportunity to shape the formative experiences of new police officers, we also aim to provide Syndicate Leads with an unrivalled period of professional development so that you are able to leave the academy with new skills that will support you in progressing in your own careers.”
– David Spencer, CEO and Co-Founder

The importance of Syndicate Leads
“My Syndicate Lead has massively helped my development and pushed me further as an officer and as an individual by encouraging me to take part in activities which I would normally sit back in. My Syndicate Lead has been so impactful when it came to asking questions and answering them, I felt very comfortable approaching them about anything and everything as they have built a good rapport with us. They were the highlight of the academy and have inspired me at such an early stage of my career.”
– Manchester participant, Summer Academy 2019
“My Syndicate Lead had a massive impact on me personally and I believe all of our syndicate. He was there at all sorts of times to help us with anything we needed and ensured he got an answer. His direct approach was perfect for the academy as we always knew if we had done something wrong and how to adjust this using the feedback he gave us. I hope the next cohort are lucky enough to have him back as a Syndicate Lead as he has developed us loads”
– London participant, Summer Academy 2019
94% participants from both London and Manchester academy stated that their Syndicate Lead had a positive impact on their development as a police officer. Many using words such as encouraging, supportive, inspirational and knowledgeable.
