Uphold law and order through the detection, prevention and investigation of crime
Being a police constable is a physically and intellectually demanding occupation, requiring high levels of emotional intelligence, strong behavioural interpretation skills and an ability to analyse and resolve rapidly evolving events. During the police constable apprenticeship, you’ll have a unique employment status, as every police constable is a warranted officer, making autonomous lawful decisions including taking away an individual’s liberty if required. You’ll train in the exercise of wide-ranging powers to maintain the peace and uphold the law across complex and diverse communities. You’ll have to justify and personally account for your actions through differing legal frameworks including courts, while also under the close scrutiny of the public. You’ll learn to work safely and lawfully, intelligently applying a range and depth of skills and knowledge to many different policing contexts, such as the management of a sensitive investigation into the sharing of sexual imagery. On completion, you’ll achieve a degree in professional policing practice.
