When we call on the police, we can anticipate every officer will have received a basic level of training, which is given at the start of his/her career. This takes place at one of the National Police Training Centres within the UK. Over 10 weeks, new officers are taught self-defence, safety, communication and handcuffing skills. After this they transfer to a local force training centre, where the national training is put into the context of local policies and procedures, using local equipment. The officer works as a probationer for two years before final basic qualification is accepted.
