South Wales Police is proud to launch the South Wales Police PPD Bursary to encourage more applications from under-represented groups and make South Wales Police more representative of the community it serves.
The South Wales Police PPD (Professional Policing Degree) Bursary offers a maximum of £4,000 to cover pre-application, study through years 1-3 on a Professional Policing Degree at one of the named Universities within the Terms of Reference and then application to South Wales Police.
South Wales Police serves a local population of 1.3 million people, 6.7% of whom are from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds. However just 3.5% of our police officers are from ethnic minority backgrounds and across the force this representation is 2.9%. We are working to address this under-representation so that we can better serve our diverse communities.
