Police First

Our mission is to transform the most challenged communities by making them safer, reducing crime and increasing confidence in the police by recruiting and developing outstanding individuals to be leaders in their communities and on the policing frontline.

Our vision is for the police service to truly reflect the public they serve; for the culture of policing to be transformed; and for no person living in any community to be in fear of crime.

Join the programme

This is a two-year leadership development programme where only the very best graduates need apply.

You'll spend two years on the policing frontline facing some of the toughest challenges London has to offer.
