  1. Researchers say it is too early to draw conclusions, despite previous study commissioned by organisation running it. A discussion at a Police Now summer event last year An evaluation of a well-funded police graduate scheme has found it has no significant impact on public confidence. Last year, survey results published by Police Now found a 17 per cent increase in confidence in police among young people in wards where the high-flying graduates are posted. But a two-year evaluation by the London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) found that overall there has been no real change. While some measures, such as how good a job young people thought the police are doing, showed an increase, the study found larger rises in other questions of public confidence among young people in Met Police wards not served by a Police Now graduate. The report says: “Across the total number of respondents, there was no compelling change in public confidence or perceptions of the police for the Police Now wards in the first year of the programme. “Generally, the trends within Police Now and comparison wards paralleled one another.” It adds that while this could be possible in time, “cause and effect” statements should not be made on it. Elsewhere, participants told researchers that while the scheme’s intensive training programme is good, fewer than half felt prepared to begin their roles as police officers after the six weeks were up. But they noted: “Confidence and preparedness also appeared to be an issue for recruits who joined via the traditional MPS entry route, suggesting it is not a problem unique to the Police Now officers but a wider issue for policing training.” Overall satisfaction with the programme was high among those taking part. David Spencer, CEO and co-founder of Police Now, said: “Policing is a high intensity and tough career. We shouldn’t hide that from new police recruits and our training is designed to reflect this simple fact. “In the recent analysis by MOPAC the majority of our participants (89 per cent) say they were highly satisfied with the training, 96 per cent would recommend the programme to friends and all agreed the Summer Academy was a positive learning environment.” He said that working with MOPAC has enabled the programme to develop as it is being rolled out.
