We offer three entry routes to join us as a new police constable in the Met:
Police Constable Entry Programme (PCEP)
Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship (PCDA)
Degree Holder Entry Programme (DHEP)
Simply choose the option that best suits how you prefer to learn, your experiences and qualifications. And whichever route you choose, you will be set up with the skills and experience you need to succeed as a police officer.
Through all our entry routes you’ll be employed as a police officer from day one, learning alongside experienced officers on London’s streets while earning a competitive salary. Our PCDA and DHEP routes also offer a fully funded degree or graduate diploma in professional policing practice.
If you don’t have the academic qualifications needed to join us through our entry routes, we partner with London colleges who deliver an access route into policing.
