Professional Profiles

Policing Professional Profiles (PPP) define the expectations and accountabilities of all for police officers and police specific staff roles. They articulate the skills and professional standards, competencies and behaviours for policing on a national basis.

PPP are designed to help:

  • Individual post holders to understand what they are accountable for, and to know the essential skills, experience and qualifications for any role so that they can explore potential progression, development and educational opportunities.
  • Line managers to objectively review an individual’s performance and inform their personal development plans
  • HR managers to inform the job evaluation, recruitment, deployment and promotion processes at force level.
  • Learning and development managers to identify training needs and to provide effective CPD and development opportunities.
