Winsor review – Part II

NBPA Statement on Direct Entry.

The NBPA Support the use of Direct Entry into the Police Service proposed in part 2 of Winsor Review Report.

The NBPA acknowledge that a liberal application of this method of recruitment could be perceived as problematic therefore the use of Direct Entry should be considered only in circumstances where recruitment under traditional methods have failed to deliver the essential diversity of skills and abilities necessary to ensure the service can cope with the complex nature of 21st century policing and maintain its legitimicy  in a Modern and Diverse Society.
