Science Profession

We recognise the need to invest and enable a specialist workforce. At the heart of our science ambition is an enabled, confident workforce with the right skills and expertise.

It is a workforce that includes natural scientists, data scientists, behavioural and social scientists, engineers, technologists, analysts and many more.

We aim to introduce a national science profession for identifying and addressing the needs of those delivering science and technology and a focal point for offering career opportunities and personal development. Pivotal to this is the continued development and integration of scientific understanding and evidence in relevant police and academic curriculum as well as supporting STEM based activities within schools, colleges and communities. We are keen to work with academia and industry to inspire the next generation and encourage wider participation in STEM subjects and promote careers in police Science and technology.
