3.29 Building an onboarding map for police forces in England and Wales

Academic team: Dr Emma Williams, Dr Nicky Miller, Laura Knight
Policing partners: Durham Constabulary
Status: Complete


This project aims to deliver a new onboarding map for new recruits joining the police service. Following the development and design of the map it will be reviewed in a small number of forces for a short user testing period and stakeholders will provide feedback on implementation. The team will then develop an implementation plan and evaluation framework for forces to use when they embed the process locally. 

This work draws on the findings from a previous project CPRL undertook for Uplift exploring the implications of the police of having a younger in service and age workforce. The work will be delivered in three stages - research, design, and delivery.
