This study considers the competencies that newly employed police recruits consider necessary for their work and compares them to the competencies actually acquired in the course of their formal education. The study is based on an electronic questionnaire which was sent to newly employed police officers two to four years after they had finished their studies. The aim of the study is to shed light on the Police’s understanding of its own profession by examining new recruits’ perceptions of their competencies and education. The study examines which types of competencies new recruits consider most important for their work and compares this to the competencies acquired in connection with their education (Bachelor’s degree). Competencies examined in the study include knowledge, skills, abilities, properties, and other factors considered important for police work. The study also has a comparative element as its concerns are compared with corresponding issues in studies of teachers, nurses, and social workers.
