About the Police Role Play

The Police Role Play is a really difficult exercise. It effectively requires you to get into the shoes of another character, and then play that part down to a tee. Naturally, not all of us are the best actors in the world! However, it’s important to note that you aren’t being judged on your acting ability, but on your ability to demonstrate the core competencies. In our online course, we’ll cover each and every single one of the core competencies, and how to demonstrate them, in fantastic detail!

During the role play, you will be required to enter a room containing two people: a role play actor and an assessor. You’ll be playing the part of a customer services officer, and the role play actor will be someone who has come to you with a difficult matter. The role play starts as soon as you enter the room, so be ready! The actor will try to make it as difficult as possible for you, but the key is to remain calm. As long as you don’t panic, and can provide logical competency based solutions, you will be just fine!

Here at How2Become, we recognise that the role play section of the Police Assessment is one of the most challenging for candidates, and that is why we have created this course. With the right preparation, you can secure your career as an officer of the law.
