Data pertaining to the Direct Entry Superintendent and Inspector schemes was provided by the College of Policing, which is the body responsible for administering those schemes.

The College of Policing works directly with police forces to assess the number of places required each year by forces. Applicants apply direct to participating forces and, if initial competency and eligibility checks are passed, are recommended for a national assessment centre run by the College. If successful, candidates are considered for appointment by their chosen force.
