Direct Entry Inspectors & Superintendents

Become an Inspector or Superintendent with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and you'll be one of the select few who can transform both our Service and London itself.

We're offering a direct entry programme for Inspector and Superintendent positions here at the Met, which means that you don't need to be a police officer to apply. We need our Service to reflect and represent the people of London so you'll need to be a role model - an exceptional leader with recognisable integrity.

The scope of the role, the influence you'll wield, and the number of lives you'll touch will be unlike anything you've experienced before. You'll be driving change across the largest police service in Europe and making decisions that could change lives for thousands of people every day.

AC Martin Hewitt, Territorial Policing

"The Direct Entry scheme allows us to attract a more varied workforce with a different mix of backgrounds, skills, experiences and aspirations who may not previously have considered a career in Policing. These individuals immerse themselves in the world of policing through an extensive and intensive training programme over 18 and 24 months. Once they take up their postings they are immediately making an impact on Policing, they become decision makers, leaders and they begin to develop expertise. The Met is a dynamic organisation and London is a dynamic city. The Met offers opportunities and experiences to develop as individuals, challenge your own abilities and learn something new every day."
