DPP logoChange is both a challenge and opportunity and over the next two years policing will change significantly. The three programmes that form the Digital Policing Portfolio (DPP) are key to ensuring we maximise the the opportunities that the digital transformation brings. But the immediate challenge for policing is ensuring police professionals from across the country are at the heart of designing and delivering a modern, efficient and effective police service.

That is why we need to draw those involved from key roles in local forces to the national programmes to ensure the delivery whats is needed most and what will work for all the stakeholders. Over the next few weeks I will highlight some of the opportunities to join the DPP.

Your country needs youIt’s not just warranted officers we need, there are great opportunities for highly skilled police staff to play key roles in our digital future. If you want to know more then please get in touch. If you have concerns about working away from force then again I am happy to share my experience. I spent 15-years at Staffordshire Police before taking this secondment opportunity so I understand the reasons not to apply.
