  • Government pilot to help parents and carers return to policing

Police officers and police staff investigators who have left the force to start a family, or care for a relative or a friend, will be able to return to permanent jobs through a new project launched today (5th March) by Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt.

The pilot programme, run by the College of Policing and funded by the Government Equalities Office (GEO), will start advertising full time investigative roles across nine force areas from April.

The forces participating in the project are:

  • Hampshire
  • Surrey
  • Sussex
  • Kent
  • Essex
  • Thames Valley
  • City of London
  • Greater Manchester
  • South Wales

The aim will be to bring back police officers into investigative roles that suit them and enable forces to utilise their wide range of skills and experience.

The returners will be equipped with all the necessary skills, training and confidence to return to work in policing. Funded by £110,000 from the GEO, the project will explore the best ways to support returners to the police and will aim to establish an evidence base for police forces across the country to build on in the future.
