  1. PushFar Pilot- Coaching and Mentoring Platform

We now have NPCC sign off on the Coaching and Mentoring platform, PushFar, which allows up to load up to 11 police forces onto the system. The longer term plan is to get Police Digital Services (PDS) sign off so this becomes a national product, however this could take some time due to policy changes and a surge in applications to PDS at this time. We currently have a few spaces for police forces to join the extended pilot.

If this is something your force might be interested in, please contact [email protected].
