IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO GET YOUR DEGREE AND THEN GET YOUR FUTURE CAREER
There are several routes into the force. This particular one is for individuals who would prefer to study first before becoming a police officer. Our Pre-join programme enables you to do a three year degree in professional policing at a participating university at your own expense.
Once you’ve completed your degree, you can then apply to the force and follow a shorter on-the-job training programme. Alternatively, becoming a Special Constable can also be part of this route. Either way, you would become a fully-fledged police constable in the June/July of your third year.
The next recruitment for this route is likely to take place in Autumn 2021.
