The Metropolitan Police Service follows a comprehensive rank structure and all new recruits start as ‘Probationary Officers’. After meeting set mandatory criteria, Probationary Officers can apply to progress into the role of ‘Constable’, whereby they receive access to new vehicles and can specialise into any of the specialist police divisions.

5 | Fundamental Police Powers
Once sworn in, Police Officers are designated powers for use in policing and protecting the communities they serve. Your powers and their uses will be explained during your initial training but there are a few fundamental powers that you may find beneficial to know prior to starting with us.
Section 24 Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE):
Arrest - To arrest a suspect they must have been placed under caution and have had both the grounds and necessity of the arrest clearly explained to them. An arrest should not be carried out unless you have reasonable grounds to suspect that an offence has been committed, is about to be committed or is currently being committed.
Caution - A person must be told the caution once they are arrested. The caution advises people of their rights while under arrest. The caution does not have to be recited verbatim, as long as the meaning of the caution is not lost. Best practice of course is to remember the caution exactly.
“You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned, something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say, can be given in evidence”.
Remember, just because you can arrest, this does not mean you have to arrest. Consider alternate methods of dealing with a situation, such as inviting the person to a voluntary interview at a police station on a later occasion, or by reporting them for summons.
Section 1 PACE 1984:
Stop and Search - An officer can stop and search anyone that they have reasonable grounds to suspect that they have any stolen or prohibited articles on them (or in/on their vehicle). You must use the GOWISELY method, in order to ensure your search is lawful you can detain a suspect for a search.
Section 32 PACE 1984:
Search after arrest: Once a person has been arrested, they can be searched under this power for DIE:
D - Implements that cause Danger to themselves or others
I - Implements to assist escape
E - Evidence of any offences
GO-WISLEY does not have to be followed for S32 searches
Section 163 Road Traffic Act (RTA) 1988
Under Section 163 of the Road Traffic Act (RTA) 1988, a constable in uniform has the power to stop any vehicle that is being driven on the road. If required to stop, a person must do so, otherwise they will be guilty of an offence.
