The Black into Policing Programme embedded into London’s communities  is to raise awareness of the police as a career of choice for Black men and women.   

The police service is a job for life, a job where you can learn new skills, enjoy new experiences, and support your communities.

You could join as an apprentice and receive a degree while working, earning an attractive salary with no student debt looming.

Make policing  your career of choice!


Our VCPB partners working in collaboration with Innovate for Growth, will mobilise our communities as part of the attraction programmes

If we are to have a real impact on social change, we need to collaborate and innovate.  By understanding the nuances of the community and recognising the demands placed on policing, together we can arrive at a solution to create a service representative of the communities its serves.

By working together we can secure real change, make a real difference and build confidence in our communities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Comply and Complain 2018
