Degrees for New Police Officers

Post by Beachcomber on Fri Dec 16, 2016 7:02 am

The College of Policing has stirred up a hornet’s nest among the policing community by declaring that from 2020, all police recruits will require a degree.

Daily Telegraph = To insist all police officers should be graduates is rank stupidity

Potential recruits should also ask the question 'what happens if I am injured?'

In 1990 I was a sergeant and shared my car journeys to work with two other sergeants, both about to attend Bramshill. They both agreed that it would be helpful if, early in their climb up the pole, they should have some experience in CID. After very brief discussion they decided that one month would be more than sufficient! I worked a very rough and busy station and my best constables constables were ex-squaddie - the worst were graduates who tended to be over-opinionated people with zero nous. Why do you think the jobs's gone down the drain then?....

Will they expect more salary, having degrees?

The level of law training we received at Ryton PTC was sufficient for a PC to do the job very effectively.
The custody sergeant is a good check and balances person for any arrests.
It is unnecessary to have ALL officers with a degree, so making it compulsory is going to throw out certain people who are not highly academic, but might have excellent people skills and be physically and mentally fit for the job.
Academics are not necessarily good PCs, sergeants or inspectors in my opinion.
All applicants will still need to get through an interview, after all.
