Designed to equip you with the knowledge and key skills to progress to a career in policing, it gives you the opportunity to develop your interpersonal skills through either a placement as a special constable or by undertaking a policing-based research project. Within your first year, you have the option to apply to be a special constable at Cumbria Constabulary, Durham Constabulary, North Lancashire Constabulary or a constabulary of your choice.
