About the Police Foundation
The Police Foundation is the only independent think tank focused exclusively on improving policing and developing knowledge and understanding of policing and crime reduction. Our mission is to generate evidence and develop ideas which deliver better policing and a safer society. We do this by producing trusted, impartial research and by working with the police and their partners to create change.
In 2022 the Police Foundation published the Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales, a far reaching and influential review on the future of policing which was the first report of its kind for many years.
Benefits of joining the Police Foundation
Working as part of a small and personable team you will have the opportunity to take on a wide variety of tasks and contribute intellectually to the Police Foundation’s research agenda and policy development work.
The Police Foundation is a remote working organisation; applicants should expect to work predominantly from home, with the expectation of expenses paid travel for monthly team meetings and events (mainly to London) and for fieldwork etc (nationwide).
The successful applicant must be willing and suitable to undergo police vetting (NPVV3), which is likely to require three years continuous residency in the UK.
