Discover the basic mistake of most promotion candidates

Published

on

Police Rank Structure UK

The College of Policing wants you to drive your own development. What better way than by securing promotion with qualified, police-focused coaching?

The College of Policing (COP) has recommended that officers should take responsibility for driving their own development. But maybe you think ‘If I need it, the organisation will provide it’. Not so. Especially if you’re looking for promotion.

So what’s the best way to secure promotion to Sergeant or Inspector? Perhaps you’ve bought law books, crammer courses and other materials. But none of these is sufficiently tailored to get you through a promotion process.

Assessment tests

You see, selection processes now include more and more assessment tests. These could be a complete blind spot if you can’t get to grips with them.

You’ll be aware of business coaching, but what if there was a coaching service specifically focused on police promotion? Run by a qualified coach?

Welcome to Rank Success. Simply choose your own combination of guides, one-to-one support and classroom instruction that’s focused entirely on getting you your stripes or pips.

And the basic mistake?

Many great candidates start preparing only when a promotion process is advertised. That’s not long enough to work on knowledge gaps, prepare thoroughly and start being the person the organisation needs.

So, if your colleagues are soaring like eagles, there’s no need to put up with clipped wings. The power to get your promotion hopes off the ground is in your own hands.

I am Steve Cooper. I support police officers who aspire to promotion to the rank of sergeant and inspector to achieve their goals. As a qualified management coach and leadership mentor I do that by asking questions and offering suggestions to identify gaps, to focus and direct effort and to maximise the potential of each individual. Some smart hard work is also required to prepare effectively!

Hero Cops save girls life of girl who wanted to kill herself

Published

on

Two fast-thinking police officers have helped saved the life of a girl who text her mate saying she wanted to end her life. Officers were quickly alerted and began searching for the girl.

The officers were alerted to the incident in the early hours of November 14, when Police Constables Daryl Jones and Mark Bullock, from Southend’s Local Policing Team, were patrolling Southend.

With the clock against them, the officers began searching the area and found a girl who matched the description. She had walked four miles from her home alone after sneaking out in the middle of the night and was on her way to Southend town centre to harm herself. The pair pulled over and approached the girl cautiously.

Upon seeing the officers, the girl broke down and became upset. Daryl and Mark reassured her that they were there to help her. After calmly engaging with the girl, the officers managed to negotiate with her to get in the police car so they could get her out of the cold and talk to her.

She spoke openly with Daryl and Mark about the difficulties she had been experiencing and how she had text her friend in the hope that the friend would get help for her.

She thanked the officers for finding her so quickly and the pair reassured her that they would get her the further help she needed.

Daryl waited with her whilst Mark made a difficult call to her parents to inform them of the situation and that their daughter had not come to any harm. Her dad thanked the officers for finding his daughter so quickly and ensuring her safety.

The girl was taken to a mental health suite for assessment and her parents thanked the officers again for finding their daughter so quickly and getting her the help she needed.

Daryl said: “I’ve never seen more of a genuine reaction for help from someone than when the young girl broke down when she saw myself and Mark and knew we were there to help her.”

Mark said: “We were just fortunate that we were in the right place at the right time and were able to locate her and help her, I have no doubt if we hadn’t of found her it would have been a different outcome.”

Published

A Police Dog who was stabbed while chasing a suspected thief has come together with Police Hour to inspire a Charity Christmas Card.

Not just any Christmas Card these cards have been specially designed and drawn by a very brave nine-year-old boy with cancer named Alex Goodwin.

German Shepherd Finn was stabbed on 5th October in Stevenage, His Handler PC Dave Wardell was also injured.

Alex was as devastated when he read that Finn and PC Wardell has been attacked. Alex began drawing pictures of Finn so the idea of a Christmas card was created and they sold out within one day.

Police officer’s son Alex is undergoing chemotherapy for Ewing Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer that affects fewer than 30 children in the UK each year. He faces further “complex” surgery at Christmas.

There is now a change the law regarding attacks on police dogs and horses. Please make sure your sign it.
