ACPO believes people should be paid for what they do, the skills they have and are applying in their work...
For many Forces currently recruiting, obtaining a pre join qualification is now mandatory before you can be considered for the police recruit assessment process.
For those hoping to join the police as constables, achieving any of these qualifications demonstrates your commitment and suitability to the role of regular constable.
As a neighbourhood police officer, your achievement of a SFJ Awards Professional Award in the Management of Neighbourhood Policing or Advanced Award in Neighbourhood Policing will provide an excellent foundation for career progression. And whether you're sponsored by your Force or you fund yourself, these qualifications will demonstrate your achievements and significantly improve your career opportunities.
Bluelight Consultancy’s qualifications could lead to potential pay benefits that will more than make up for any personal funds you may commit to your development. It's worth bearing in mind that the recently published Winsor Report recommended an allowance of £600 for neighbourhood police officers who have served 'in the same community for more than three years (in the absence of any established system of professional accreditation in this area).'
