DIRECT ENTRY INSPECTOR PROGRAMME

This is a comprehensive, 24-month programme that builds on the skills and experience you already have. The programme is designed to challenge you, your thinking and perceptions, so you gain real policing knowledge and skills. The best candidates will greet every challenge with ambition and determination. Policing hours can sometimes be unpredictable, so you’ll need to be naturally adaptable and resilient.

Once you’ve completed the course, you’ll be a uniformed operational inspector, positively impacting policing, the local community and the wider society. You can find more details on core competencies right here. Or you can learn more about different routes into policing here.
