Stating The Bleedin Obvious

Reading Time: 2 minutes Those of you who follow this blog regularly will no doubt have noticed something a little unexpected about it. The College of Policing are pushing the ‘new’, ‘better’ Entry Routes above the more traditional Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP).
