Workforce Transformation

Support for a stronger workforce

​Workforce transformation is a series of programmes, services and reforms to support and strengthen the people working in policing. Taken together, these can help to achieve the workforce-related goals agreed by police and crime commissioners and chief constables in the Policing Vision 2025. This vision is built on a shared goal to improve policing for the public.

A document has been published so you can easily see how the work streams link and see the timelines involved.

The document, created with the National Police Chiefs' Council, will assist forces in planning and implementing this work.

It covers:

  1. Attraction and recruitment into the police service
  2. Professional development of the workforce
  3. Well-being and engagement
  4. Leadership in policing
  5. Pay and grading
  6. Organisational development

The document comprises three distinct sections, which explain what's happening, when and why:

  • An introduction, which highlights the context for change
  • A timeline, which shows what's planned to happen, and when at a high level
  • A comprehensive document, which provides additional information about each initiative

The document will be updated on a regular basis and we'll let you know when any major changes have been made. Meanwhile, it will help you better understand how and why the work streams are intrinsically linked to deliver our overall purpose – to support a stronger workforce and improve policing for the public.

Policing Vision 2025 asks 'What should the police service look like in 2025?'
- 'By 2025 policing will be a profession with a more representative workforce that will align the right skills, power and experience to meet challenging requirements'.
