Will you help us building a future proof police?

The Innovationlab (iLab) is part of the Dutch National Police force. We aim to build a future-proof police by giving space to creativity and innovative ideas. The iLab supports these ideas so that they can make a real contribution to our organization. At the iLab we work together with different companies and knowledge institution, because we believe that we build the future together.

Almost all police officers are obligated to train their skills throughout the year. They train their physical skills, like self-defence and arresting suspects but they also train their knowledge, like laws and rules.

The Dutch National Police is Netherlands largest employer with over 63.000 employees. It is a major challenge to train the officers as much as they need. And an even bigger challenge to make this training personalized and attractive. Now every officer has four days a year that he or she goes to a training-day. The iLab developed a prototype, a blended learning platform so that the officer can train wherever, whenever and as much as he or she likes to prepare for the training-days. Now our challenge is to test whether this platform really helps the officer and how we can personalize the training so that the officer keeps on being challenged. And second, policework is teamwork, how can this platform improve collaboration?

Can you help us with developing and testing this kind of platform?
