Welcome to Leaving The Police

Assisting former police officers and police staff to further their careers


Packing Up

Are you due to leave or have you recently left the police service?

Moving from a career in policing to the ‘outside world’ can be quite a daunting situation to be in, whether it’s because of retirement or because you feel that it’s time for a change.

Here are some reasons why you may be concerned about your future prospects:

  • You think that your skills are not relevant to help you get a decent job.
  • If you haven’t had to apply for jobs for a while and are not sure where to look.
  • You don’t have recent experience of completing a good quality CV.
  • You can’t remember the last time you had to prepare for an external job interview.
  • Do you have a fear of the unknown.

How can we help you?

At Leaving the Police, we are here to help. Having been where you are now and successfully come out the other side, we provide a range of services and information that will help you make the transition from the working environment you are used to, to one that you may not be so familiar with.

From regular webinars and support clinics, to a range of useful services and support mechanisms, we have the experience to make the next step of your life another success story.
