Entry routes into Police Futures

Police Futures Logo in bluePolice Futures has two entry routes: one for serving officers, and one for graduate entrants who are not currently serving officers (members of the Special Constabulary are eligible to apply as graduate entrants).

Graduates are expected to have achieved a first or second class degree at undergraduate level, or a post-graduate qualification at the point of entry onto the scheme.  Current students who are expecting to graduate with a qualifying degree are eligible to apply within their final year of study.  

Police Futures applicants will have excellent communication skills, an aptitude for problem-solving, and the ability to understand and interpret data. But most importantly we are looking for applicants who are committed to building a better future for society through leadership in policing.

The selection process for Police Futures is designed to get the best from you. It includes a variety of tests so that everyone gets the opportunity to shine, from psychometric and written assessments, to presentations and role plays.  We want to understand what make you unique, and how you can contribute to the future leadership of policing in Britain.
