Policing professional framework

The Policing Professional Framework (PPF) provides role profiles for officers based on rank and role profiles for staff based on level.

You can find the PPF on the Skills for Justice website. Work is currently underway on replacing the PPF with Professional Profiles as part of our new Professional Development Platform, a place where you can also find out about the Competency and Values Framework (CVF) and Recognition of Prior Experience and Learning (RPL).
