Degrees of inclusion

13 Nov

I just wanted to congratulate the College of Policing, no, seriously.  In one glorious stroke you have denegrated every Police Officer without a degree.  As if the media and gvt attacks upon their credibility were not enough to chip away at their self esteem and well being!  You appear to have said that their personal experience, commitment and dedication is worth not a jot!  Good morale boost that.  From the outside it looks like a ploy to give your own existence meaning and sustainability.  At what price?

How are you ever going to get inclusion right if you can’t even include the bulk of your own workforce?  Is a degree the only way to prove that on one day at a particular time critical thinking skills were apparent: ok, that was under exam conditions, with weeks to prepare and not during a life and death scenario those who do that and have done that haven’t got the paper to prove it so it doesn’t count right?  That can’t be measured. 

I am not usually so critical (well not often) how are you going to rebuild the officers you have just knocked down?  How are you going to ensure that those already there are going to have their experience and competence recognised, particularly in the future when a *qualified* officer and an established one are applying for promotion a few years down the track?  That’s supposing that the established officers stay around that long to find out!  Hmmm, mass leaving would certainly save money on redundancy pay when compulsory severance comes in wouldn’t it?

    Yes I joined without a degree and seem to have done OK.

    A CC I know on promotion to ACC got the job with a provision that they acquired a degree!

    And both of us excluded a degree does not confirm any quality of common sense. Both hospitals and schools are still searching for that…. As well as the cops

    I wonder if this is real or just some strategic manoeuvre to gain something else? Sounds stupid at any rate. My uncle joined the police straight after serving as an MP in the army during WWII, he ended up as Assistant Chief Constable in Warwickshire! His 2 sons went through the ranks and ended up in the middle ranks. None of one of them had Uni degrees.
