Our vision is to be a world class professional body, equipping members with the skills and knowledge to prevent crime, protect the public and secure public trust. The quality of our services, the support for our members and a reputation for cutting-edge research and teaching will have a profound effect on the future development of policing in the UK and overseas for years to come.
We have four complementary functions:
Knowledge: developing the research and infrastructure for improving evidence of ‘what works’. Over time, this will ensure policing practice and standards are based on knowledge, not

Education: supporting the development of individual members of the profession. We set educational requirements to assure the public of the quality and consistency of policing skills, and facilitate academic accreditation and recognition of our members’ expertise.
Standards: drawing on the best available evidence of ‘what works’ to set standards in policing for forces and individuals, for example, through Authorised Professional Practice and peer review.
Building the College: developing our infrastructure so we achieve even greater efficiency and effectiveness and establish the College as an independent professional body and employer of choice.
Applications are invited for the posts of Practice Developers.
The selected candidate will develop and deliver evidence-based professional practice standards and guidelines for policing and crime reduction through:
review of existing standards and guidance to determine continued fitness for purpose;
critical appraisal of evidence to scope and draft new and revised guidelines; and
leading national stakeholders in interpreting evidence and defining appropriate guidance and practice
to develop evidence based guidance and standards for the police service across England and Wales.
All applicants must hold;
Degree or equivalent Level 6 qualification, or equivalent level of experience and further learning and development in policing, government, law, criminal justice or related fields
Evidence of commitment to continuing professional development
