A NEW online video diary detailing the experiences of a group of new recruits as they train to become police officers has been launched by Merseyside Police.

The weekly YouTube series will follow officers throughout their 18 weeks of training.

Cop School will follow 22 men and woman as they go from raw recruits to warranted officers ready to start their police careers.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Armitt said: “These videos will follow the highs and lows of the latest recruits as they make the transition from civilian life to serving as a Police Constable. We hope they will give members of the public an insight into the training a new police recruit goes through.

“The series will follow these recruits and their development as they learn subjects as diverse as first aid, social media, arresting and searching offenders and preserving crime scenes.”

Each week, video diary segments will capture the officers talking about what they have learnt that week and how they feel they are progressing.
