The College of Policing is the professional body for policing in the UK and we launched our membership website in October 2016. We believe there is strength in numbers. The feedback we receive from our 24,000 members not only allows us to deliver to them the membership benefits and support they tell us they want, but their views are now also helping to shape the future development of their professional body. Take advantage of the wealth of services and benefits available at your fingertips on the secure membership website. So if you’re not already a member, join today. Be heard. Join the conversation.
Membership is open to all officers and staff working in eligible organisations (see below) and it's free to join. Sign up today to access the following benefits…

Step 2: When prompted, enter your MLE user name and password, read and agree the terms and conditions, and that's it, you'll be a fully signed up member of the College of Policing.
Who can join (eligible organisations)?
Staff and officers from all Home Office forces and British Transport Police, Civil Nuclear Constabulary, College of Policing, Guernsey Police, Ministry of Defence Police, National Crime Agency, Police Service of Northern Ireland, and States of Jersey Police are eligible to join membership as only those with a a PNN (Police National Network) or GSi (Government Secure intranet) email address may join.
Plans are afoot to develop further classes of membership for a wider audience. As yet, there are no determined dates but we have identified other eligible professionals, such as international police forces and academics. The packages will be announced when they become available.
Other ways to be involved
Members' Committee: You could join the Members' Committee. This influential committee was set up in June 2015. It meets three times a year and reports directly to the College Board. The committee has been tasked with promoting and supporting the development of membership of the College and its members' services and facilities. Reports from their meetings are Members' Committee meeting minutes.
Membership and its website are still in the early stages of development and many new products and services are in the pipeline. What you will experience now is not the final product but a work in progress. We encourage you to send us your feedback to help us to build and improve membership so that it meets all your professional expectations. If there is anything missing that you want to see, anything you see that you didn't expect, or if you have any thoughts on how we could improve the membership offer, we would really value your views.
