  1. The “right to be offended” does not exist, a judge has said. At last some common sense! https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/11/20/right-offended-does-not-exist-judge-says-court-hears-police/
  2. Dear Police Community; Apologies if this is in the wrong group/thread. Has anyone applied for the College of Policing Fast Track scheme which closed on Wednesday 23rd of October 2019? If you haven't what are your thoughts and opinions. Background ## I have applied for the scheme with less than 5 years service in my role. With the ever increasing presence of Direct Entry (inspectors/superintendents) in the work force, I find it is paramount for future leaders to apply earlier on in their service in order to make a difference.

  3. Radical plans to modernise the police by linking pay to performance and recruiting outside experts on short-term contracts have been proposed by the police chief in charge of standards. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/11/18/performance-related-pay-short-term-contracts-cyber-experts-should/ So anyone expecting good news from this I wonder? Do you agree pay needs reforming and if so how?
  4. Hi guys, so I thought I'd move over the thread I created originally on PS.com and bring it over here, enjoy! CKP in general: Information taken from College of Policing website. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CKP regarding Metropolitan Police: Do I need CKP to join as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police? Yes, if you want to become a Police Constable with us then yes, you will need CKP with one of the approved providers that can be found through the College of Policing website. You will need to have COMPLETED the KFC course prior to starting training. Will the CKP guarantee me a job as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police? No. You will still need to pass Day 1, Day 2, Vetting/References AND Training. Remember CKP does not guarantee you a job, it just makes you eligible to start training. Do I need CKP to join as a Police Constable if I am a Special Constable with the Metropolitan Police? Nope, you don't need CKP if you are in the Metropolitan Special Constabulary to join as a Police Constable with the Metropolitan Police. I am a Special Constable with another force, do I need the CKP to join as a Police Constable in the Metropolitan Police? Yes. This is because if you are with another force you are deemed as an external candidate. There are no rumours or any news of this changing any time soon and I think this will probably stick. Will the Metropolitan Police be getting rid of the CKP? Not for the foreseeable future. If you have heard rumours, please for god sake ignore them. If anything official is released I'm sure it will be on the Metropolitan Police website and here. Will the Metropolitan Police providing funding for the CKP? I believe if you are a successful candidate in passing the SEARCH assessments then the funding comes in the form of an interest free loan, paid back from your wage once you're in service. However, confirm this with MetHR as there could be certain requirements and/or the information could have changed. I have already attained a SEARCH assessment pass in the last 2 years, do I still need the CKP? Oh yes. I have attained the PLC in the last 3-4 years, do I still need to do the CKP? As it stands, and as far as I'm aware you will not have to do the CKP - but like most things, I would confirm this with MetHR. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These are all the questions I could think of. If you have any more questions, please ask below. If anyone thinks I am missing any information or any information is incorrect please add below and I will add or correct . As it stands, this is a thread for External Met PC applicants. Hope this helps! Useful links: College of Policing Metropolitan Police Careers Bluelight Other approved providers
  5. http://www.college.police.uk/News/College-news/Pages/direct_entry_insp.aspx Yay. Direct entry inspectors, just like the direct entry superintendents, the stunning success. My inspector has been in the role for about a year, front line in an essential position that cant be disposed of. But they are still only temporary, after a year. Im sure they wont mind place holding for a while and then getting booted out for someone else.
  6. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33314295 The police service is resistant to change because of an "insular attitude" and chief constables who fail to listen to officers, the body responsible for training in England and Wales says. A College of Policing review said the service needed to address issues of hierarchy, culture and consistency. It identifies positive aspects of police culture, such as decisiveness, compassion and a "can do" attitude. But it also suggests there may need to be a reduction in the number of ranks. A "flatter system" could lead to significant improvements, it adds. 'More teamwork'The leadership review concludes a major obstacle to reform is what it describes as the "heroic model" of leadership, in which officers are expected to carry out the will of the chief constable, who acts as a figurehead. There should instead be more emphasis on teamwork, it says. "The distance between the majority of the workforce and senior leaders created by the rank hierarchy can reduce the willingness of some to adhere to best practice or seek development opportunities," it says. The document calls for a new model of leadership and management training within the service. It says all vacancies should be promoted nationally, there should be increased flexibility in assigning power to staff, and chief officers should be allowed to continue to develop. Minority 'challenge'The report also highlights the "huge" challenge the service faces to improve black, minority or ethnic representation. Some 17,000 BME officers will have to be recruited over the next decade for the service to be "more representative", it says. The review was carried out after a request by Home Secretary Theresa May. College of Policing CEO Chief Constable Alex Marshall said: "I do not underestimate the challenge of delivering these recommendations. "While the college has a significant part to play, they require a much wider response from across the police service, police and crime commissioners and the Home Office. "Implementing the recommendations inevitably comes with a cost, but we accept that investment is crucial if we are to improve the way that our leaders are developed." :Well. Much as i dislike the collage of policing a great deal - making us pay a subscription to be a police officer which they say they wont but definitely will etc, there is probably something in what they say. Which i am sure everyone everywhere knows, because its very obvious. And a problem effecting most public institutions and something that simply wont change. And its always good to see more suggestions that we remove ranks and farm the rest out to the entire UK. More and more steps away from me getting any form of promotion. I dont have a great deal of knowledge as to what the upper management do, i generally find at the weekend that things on the ground work much better and lots of the stuff that "has" to be done doesnt actually need to be, and car-parking is much better which is great. Im sure we all know high ranked officers who are known as incompetent, detached and generally a long way from reality. Again, much like many management across the board. Finally, recruiting 17,000 BME officers in the next 10 years? Even if all recruitment is closed to anyone who is not BME, its hard to see us getting cut and losing officers everywhere and still having solid and constant recruitment of BME officers.

  8. The College of Policing today launched an eight-week consultation on the national policing guidance to officers and staff investigating and responding to domestic abuse.   The guidance, known as Authorised Professional Practice (APP), is available online and has been updated to include clearer standards from the initial call handling to those in strategic positions who are responsible for ensuring the best response to domestic abuse.   The APP covers risk and vulnerability, call handling, first response, domestic violence protection notices and orders, investigation, post-arrest management, victim safety and support and partnership working.   College of Policing faculty lead on crime and criminal justice David Tucker said:   “We’ve been working with experts in policing and partner agencies to review and update our approaches to domestic abuse to make sure we do all we can to make victims, potential victims and their children as safe as possible. The revisions address many recommendations from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and includes new laws and procedures such as Clare’s law and the best use of domestic violence protection orders.   “We’re now putting the updated guidance out to public consultation and want to hear from those within policing and outside policing to ensure that the content covers all the key considerations and is useful to practitioners.”   The APP consultation has been launched at the same time as the College of Policing research team publishes a review of the best evidence on the risk factors for domestic abuse.   The Rapid Evidence Assessment, based on 16 systematic reviews, helps identify risk factors associated with domestic abuse and the effectiveness of tools that predict risk of domestic abuse.   Director of Knowledge, Research and Education Rachel Tuffin said: “While the reviews focus on factors predicting violence rather than other forms of domestic abuse, they show there is a strong link between emotional and verbal abuse and experience of physical violence.   “The findings suggest that when frontline responders are making assessments of risk they need to focus more on the pattern of behaviour within the relationship, than on external factors such as alcohol use.   “There was insufficient evidence to recommend any one tool or set of factors in predicting domestic abuse, but the studies suggest officers and staff need to take victims’ own perception of their risk carefully into account alongside, or as part of any tool.” Notes to Editors The consultation was launched today and is open for eight weeks, closing on 18 February, 2015. For more information: http://www.app.college.police.uk/consultation/domestic-abuse-consultation/   The rapid evidence assessment is available here: http://www.college.police.uk/en/docs/DA_ROR_Summary_14-12-15.doc   http://college.pressofficeadmin.com/component/content/article/45-press-releases/823
  9. More than 600 people have applied for the Fast Track programme in forces across England and Wales which will see exceptional candidates reach the rank of inspector in three years.   The programme, which is still open to police staff, graduates and police specials to apply, has received 657 applications across 27 police forces.   Of those, 361 are male and 296 are female. This includes 55 black or minority ethnic candidates.   Fast Track is an accelerated three-year promotion and development programme which gives the most talented graduates the skills, knowledge and experience to advance to the rank of inspector from police constable within three years.   The application process is still open for police staff, graduates and specials and you can apply online through a dedicated website.   Candidates will be expected to tackle danger head on while other members of the public turn away. They will have to justify and account for their actions to ensure they are working ethically, proportionally and to the standards the public expect.   The programme is a blend of classroom learning delivered at regional training centres, and operational training and development in the force where they have applied. Candidates will be supported to learn what it takes to become a police officer and to quickly put that learning into practice.   Chief Superintendent Nicola Dale, who leads the fast track programme at the College of Policing, said: “This is really about the high calibre candidates because it is such a significant challenge to become an inspector after just three years. “The high number of applications reflects the interest that police staff, graduates and specials have to seek a career in the highly demanding role of an inspector.   “Potential candidates have until Friday to apply and I would encourage them to work carefully through the self-selection questionnaire and high potential development tool which are on the website.”   Successful candidates will begin training in September 2015.   Fast Track also opened in October this year for serving constables to accelerate to the rank of inspector. Most forces have now closed their application windows, but officers are advised to check with the force they wish to apply to. The programme will reopen in 2015.   Notes to Editors On Friday, 12th December 2014 Chief Superintendent Nicola Dale held a Q&A with interested candidates on Twitter from 1-2pm. You can view the answers given by searching #fasttrack and viewing the College of Policing timeline @CollegeofPolice The forces taking part are:   Avon & Somerset Constabulary Bedfordshire Police British Transport Police Cambridgeshire Constabulary Cheshire Constabulary Dyfed Powys Police Essex Police Kent Police Greater Manchester Police Hertfordshire Constabulary Humberside Police South Yorkshire Police Metropolitan Police Service Norfolk Constabulary Suffolk Constabulary North Wales Police Northamptonshire Police Northumbria Police Staffordshire South Wales Police Surrey Police Sussex Police Thames Valley Police Warwickshire Police West Mercia Police West Midlands Police West Yorkshire Police   About the College of Policing:   The College of Policing is the professional body for policing.

  10. The Best Use of Stop and Search Scheme has launched today with 35 forces implementing the new approach   The voluntary scheme is part of a range of measures that will contribute to a reduction in the overall use of stop and search, lead to better and more intelligence-led stop and searches and more effective outcomes.   The 35 forces going live today have implemented all aspects of the scheme to: • increase transparency by recording all outcomes of stop and search and whether there is a connection between the grounds for the search and the outcome; • restrict the use of Section 60 “no suspicion” powers; • give members of the public the opportunity to observe stop and search in practice; and • introduce a community complaints trigger – ensuring that complaints are properly monitored and scrutinised.   The remaining eight forces – City of London, Derbyshire, South Yorkshire, Greater Manchester Police, Dorset, South Wales, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire – are already implementing aspects of this scheme and have confirmed the scheme will become fully operational in their force area in coming months.   College of Policing lead on stop and search Inspector Nick Glynn said: “Stop and search powers are necessary to help us tackle crime and keep people safe. It is clear that the service has not always got its use of these intrusive powers right, and this has left resentment in our communities. Under this scheme outcomes will be recorded in more detail so we have a greater understanding of how the powers are being used.   "Searches which do not require reasonable grounds of suspicion will reduce, be subject to more effective oversight from senior officers and communities will have greater powers to question the police over their use of stop and search.   “The College of Policing is working to review and develop the evidence-base, training and guidance on stop and search. This will help to ensure that police officers at every level in the service – including those at senior ranks overseeing the use of the power - are equipped with the right knowledge and skills to conduct stop and search effectively, proportionately and fairly.   "We are also working in partnership with the Equality and Human Rights Commission to look at whether unconscious bias is affecting officers’ use of stop and search.   “There are many areas of good practice and the College will be sharing that across the country so that we see the changes needed to ensure that our communities are confident that these important powers are being used appropriately and where their use is necessary.”   From today West Mercia and Nottinghamshire police will begin a pilot scheme that will digitally map stop and searches, identifying locations where stop and searches take place using geo-mapping technology. The data will be uploaded to Police.uk so the public can monitor the use of stop and search powers.   And following an eight-week public consultation on revising the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) Code A, which governs the police’s use of stop and search, the Home Secretary will lay a revision to Code A in parliament this week.   This revision will make clear to officers what constitutes ‘reasonable grounds for suspicion’ and to emphasise that the misuse of stop and search powers would lead to performance or disciplinary procedures.   Notes to Editors About the College of Policing: The College of Policing is the professional body for policing.
