“Localised problems of anti-social behaviour really affect people’s day-to-day lives. I believe having a diverse neighbourhood team, who routinely patrol and investigate particular areas, can positively impact crime and create long-term relationships between the police and the public… I feel Police Now focus on combating problems, through the emphasis on how the different psychological theories relate to crime and communities. This is really an initiative way of policing which I strongly advocate. I believe this modern view is something which can help communities through formed patterns of behaviour, and intelligence-led policing.” - Police Constable Kimberley Daniel, National Graduate Leadership Programme participant
Police Now’s mission is to transform communities, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, and increase the public’s confidence in the police service by recruiting, developing and inspiring outstanding and diverse leaders in society and on the policing frontline.
