What's involved in the application form?

You’ll normally fill out your application form online. You’ll typically be asked about:

  • Your personal details (like full name, date of birth and address)
  • Your education history and qualifications
  • Your employment history
  • Any convictions
  • Your financial situation and any business interests
  • Any tattoos you have

The application form often includes some competency and / or values-based questions - find out more about the College of Policing's Competency & Values Framework to help you prepare.
