  • Explore practical applications of operational policing over a wide range of policing problems.
  • Offer the opportunity to develop the above in relation to specialist areas of interest culminating in the production of an in-depth piece of independent research focussed on policing at level 6.
  • Provide an insight into the role of an investigating officer from the outset of an enquiry and to test problem solving, decision making and communication skills through a developing scenario.

Students are assessed through a combination of essays, module specific research projects, seen and unseen examinations and an individual largely self directed project focussed upon Policing.

At level 4 assessments seek to encourage students to specify and describe theories and institutions.

At level 5 assessments require students to extend and critically evaluate the knowledge they have encountered. Students at this level are also required to produce research reports including data analysis and interpretation.
