|Abstract||This paper will explore one aspect of Teesside University's (UK) policing provision, focusing upon one short awareness programme, the Potential Police Officer and Community Support Officers Course, designed and delivered to assist individuals to make a career choice when considering working within the policing arena (in any role, whether voluntary or paid). Outcomes will be supported by research data. It will suggest that the programme may have long-term benefits in terms of individuals entering the application process and being retained in post, such benefits impacting upon both individuals and police forces. Elements of the programme will be considered in terms of their strengths and weaknesses, summarising its position in the current austere economic climate.|
