National Graduate Leadership Programme 2018

Is it fair that children growing up in social housing are 37% more likely to become victims of crime? Or that the poorest neighbourhoods are more likely to have the highest rates of crime? Don’t you think it’s time we changed the story?

Police Now recruits and trains outstanding graduates, so they can help transform society as police officers on the frontline. The challenge is unique. The environment is fast-paced. If you care about making society better, apply for Police Now’s two-year national graduate leadership programme.
