Police Now is a charity whose mission is to transform communities by recruiting, developing and inspiring leaders in policing.
We are aware of the stigma around policing and the issues within communities across the country and at Police Now it has always been our aim to diversify the police to enable them to work more effectively in diverse communities. To do this we need more representatives from black heritage backgrounds to want to see a change and start making a difference by applying for our programmes. That change starts with your application.
Our National Detective Programme is designed to equip you with the core policing skills required in modern investigative work. Throughout the two-year training programme, you’ll play an integral part in solving crimes while developing your leadership, communication and problem- solving skills.
The programme is designed to equip you with the core policing skills required in modern investigative work. Being a detective is all about how you interpret information and being able to see clues where others don’t, allowing you to see below the surface.
Successful candidates will be tactical and resilient focusing on working towards defined goals, rarely losing focus – the tenacity you bring to your role as a detective will help you deliver on these key attributes. You’ll critically analyse information and collaborate with others, combining insight and evidence to define root causes of some of the UK’s most complex problems/scenarios. Everything you do, you’ll be adaptive to change to maintain flexible views as situations change and be able to show compassion to the communities you serve. By demonstrating a positive can-do attitude, you will view obstacles differently to everyone else – there to be tackled head-on rather than used as an excuse to give up. As a detective you will quickly become an instrumental member of the police force, solving crimes and working towards making our communities safer places to live, for generations to come.
