These policing programmes provide students with an academic and vocational understanding of policing and also serve as an introduction to a career with the police. The programme will emphasise the diversity of the police role by drawing upon a variety of contexts in which policing is discussed. This will include debates concerning moves to foster a commitment to interagency work, the legal and ethical parameters and duties involved, criminological theories, and the application of rational and scientific methods.
