I get asked this question all the time … having a good awareness of the issues affecting policing will help you to stand out from the crowd.
Whether thinking of joining the police or wanting that next police promotion, it is worth taking some time to critically analyse policing before working on your skills and experience.
My e-learning courses talk in more depth about challenges in policing but here are a few questions to get you thinking …
- Is degree entry into policing a good thing or not? Will it affect efforts to have a police service which is representative of the public? Will some communities be disadvantaged by such a policy?
- What do you think about direct entry into policing at Inspector and Superintendent level? Is it necessary and if so why?
- Is policing sustainable as it is? Can the police force cope with new and unprecedented demands? Should there be fewer police forces or even a national police force to reduce waste and ensure greater resilience?
What views do you have? Have you given them any thought? How would you approach any of these questions or presentation subjects?
Help is on hand – regardless of whether you’re at the beginning of planning your police journey or taking the next step with police promotion – I’ve developed models, structures and will help you to think about and plan your answers.
