About this course

Advanced Policing develops the skills increasingly required by forces and law enforcement agencies as policing moves further towards an evidence-based approach.

  • Address the quantitative research skills gap identified in policing
  • Build evidence-based learning skills
  • Look forward to excellent career opportunities in supervision, neighbourhood policing and analysis
  • Benefit from this valuable foundation for progression to PhD

Ideal for serving police officers and those yet to embark on their career, this new programme has been designed to fill the skills gap in quantitative research identified in policing. You will benefit from training in research skills and given the opportunity to carry out a dissertation in an area of specialist interest. ​The Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies has significant expertise in the Policing sector and can thus provide supervision in a wide range of topics. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary methodologies. Our Policing Studies qualifications are focused on developing the professionalisation agenda for policing and we work with the professional body, the College of Policing, as well as local policing organisations to ensure the relevance, credibility, and currency of its courses.

Our particular areas of strength include:

  • transnational and public order policing
  • serious organised crime
  • victimology and domestic violence
  • terrorism and counter-terrorism
  • intelligence-led policing
  • human trafficking

The programme is specifically designed to address the skills gap identified by the police service in relation to quantitative research. Taught by lecturers with scholarly and professional backgrounds in policing and research, you will explore and engage with policing debates at national, international and transnational level. You will also be part of the Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies, a leading research centre devoted to supporting the needs of 21st century policing.
