UK Police Recruitment Process

All UK police forces use the UK National Recruitment Model to select new police officers. The police recruitment process consists of a police test (PIRT), Role-Play exams, Interviews, and Physical testing.

The National Recruitment Model, which has been adopted by all forces in England & Wales, utilises an assessment centre to evaluate all police candidates who have successfully passed the paper sift.

What is the process?

Stage 1:
- 12 minute numerical reasoning test
- 25 minute verbal reasoning test
- Four 5-minute role-play exercises
- 2 written tests
- 20 minute structured interview

Stage 2:
- Job Related Fitness Test (JRFT)
- Medical assessment
