Officers in training

12 Months Probation

7 Weeks Training

As a national police force, we expect to train our people to be the best.

During your eight weeks training at our Force Learning & Development Centre in London there will be a combination of classroom leaning and practical sessions. After the 7 weeks training you will pass out and then commence shifts at your designated posting.

Your training doesn’t end there. For the remainder of your 12 month probationary period you’ll move outside the confines of the classroom. But only when you’ve been successfully assessed in this safe learning environment will you move onto the biggest part of your training which will be carried out under supervision in an ‘operational’ capacity.
