Unfortunately, most people who attempt the police officer selection process fail.

They just don’t get it!

When it comes to the application form, the importance of the core competencies, the ‘Day 1’ assessment centre, taking numerical, verbal and written tests, the interactive role play exercises and interviews, they either haven’t prepared enough, or not at all…

…they think the resource pack is all they need…

…or that because everyone tells them they have what it takes to be a police officer, they don’t need to worry about preparation.

That type of “I’ll wing it on the day” preparation just won’t cut it anymore! Not only is it an undesirable attitude for police officers, it’s almost certain you’ll fail!

75% of all those that apply to become a police officer fail the selection process.

In most cases they were underprepared.

And by failing the process (at the assessment centre – if they even made it that far), they have to wait 6 months before they can reapply to ANY constabulary across the country.

If you actually want to fully prepare and succeed at your first attempt, then you need to do more.

You need a PROVEN process in place to tell you exactly how, and what, you need to do to pass the UK Police officer selection process!

But how do you pass each stage of the selection process with ease, scoring highly in your assessments and get that all important edge over other applicants…

…and get an insight to the selection process that details everything you must do to prepare and pass?

Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re about to learn…
