The Home Office is responsible for the www.joiningthepolice.co.uk website. The Home Office applied for, and was granted, an exemption from gov.uk in line with normal procedures on the basis that the gov.uk campaigns platform offers limited functionality. Specifically, it would not have supported the required interactive map providing live information on the forces currently recruiting in specific entry routes. Police Now is an independent national charitable social enterprise. The Home Office is not responsible for its website arrangements.
