(UK, 21/06/2022) The police force is essential to any country’s security system, and the UK is no different. The sector recruited about 135,300 officers in England and Wales as of 2021. The police workforce has then grown by about 7% in the last five years. With over 140,000 officers in England and Wales alone, it’s one of the largest employers in the country.
There are strict requirements for who can become a police officer to maintain such a large workforce. Triumph Consultants Limited has revealed the critical skills and qualities needed to become a police officer in the country.

Police work is a tedious and physically demanding job. As such, officers need to be able to run long distances, climb over obstacles, and maintain their composure during high-pressure situations. Extensive training is provided to recruits to ensure they are physically fit for the job.
Excellent Communication and Interpersonal Skills
The nature of the job requires police officers to deal with members of the public daily. They need to communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing. They also need to build good relationships with the people they work with.
Strong Problem-Solving Skills
Finally, police officers should be able to think on their feet and solve problems quickly. This entails making decisions in complex and sometimes dangerous situations.
