Consultation on the implementation of direct entry in the police

We are consulting on how to implement proposals from Tom Winsor's Independent Review of Police Officer and Staff Remuneration and Conditions.

These include:

  • a national fast track scheme to the rank of inspector
  • a direct entry scheme for the rank of superintendent
  • changes to the eligibility criteria for the rank of chief constable

Further information on Tom Winsor's recommendations relating to this can be found on pages 102-195 of the Independent Review of Police (part 2).

The full consultation document outlines the key recommendations for how the new direct entry scheme would work for all three ranks.
