DC DHEP - Warwickshire Police 

As a student police officer, you’ll get to learn new skills, meet new people and study for a degree in Professional Policing Practice, meaning that you can earn while you learn.

Here at Warwickshire Police we have a strong family ethos, where our friendly teams work closely together to get the job done and where you will be treated as a valued member of the team from day one.

If you apply to this campaign, we would be aiming for you to commence on the Programme in 2023.  We look forward to you joining us!

We strongly recommend that you attend one of our recruitment events to gain further insight into the role from our current Detectives.  More information about our upcoming events and other information for your awareness about the Programme will be published on our website: Detective Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP) | Warwickshire Police

At the time of application, candidates must have achieved, or are due to graduate in the year you are applying, with a Bachelor's Degree or higher.  Please ensure that you upload the copies of your relevant qualification certificates onto your application form when you complete it.

Good luck with your application!

Next Steps...

If eligible to apply, you will be sent an automated invitation email for you to complete an online National Sift process involving two exercises:

  • Situational judgement test (SJT)
  • 15 scenarios
  • 4 responses per scenario – candidates will rate responses in terms of effectiveness
  • Behavioural style questionnaire (BSQ)  
  • 80 statements

As this is a nationally led selection process, you will be required to register on the system separately, however it is an extremely short registration process!

You will have 7 days to complete the exercises.  These can be completed in any order you prefer, and at any time of day, 24/7, during that time.   

Reasonable Adjustments: The national sift is not timed, therefore no reasonable adjustments are required.  It is automatically compatible with text to speech software, changes to background colour and coloured overlays.

If you are unsuccessful you will be provided with feedback and will be eligible to re-apply after three months, however, you are only able to complete the national sift twice within a rolling 12 month period.

For any further queries, please contact the recruitment team at recruitmentsupport@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk

Please note, you will require the following detail to complete this application form; NI Number, ID detail, address information, referee information, full employment history including dates and any qualifications you may have attained.  You may also be requested to provide photos of any visible tattoos you have. The application system only remains active on a single page for a period of 60 minutes. Please therefore ensure you allow time to complete this fully as part complete pages will not be saved.
