The British public policing model is respected universally; it has been adopted by police departments all over the world. This programme critically assesses the adoption of that model in other nations. Students also critically examine the work of international policing and criminal justice organisations.

Policing is often an international partnership between forces and national agencies, so a deep understanding of issues affecting contemporary law enforcement is required. This Masters programme will enable you to critically explore key issues and conduct exciting new research in this diverse area.

Under the guidance of specialist supervision and among a diverse community of fellow researchers, you will gain a valuable foundation, building skills in research, analysis, conceptualisation, argument and presentation – all highly prized in many areas of employment.

You will receive specialist supervision and study within a diverse community of fellow researchers. Staff are active in a wide range of fields including: Data Science; Cyber Security; Evidence-Based Practice; Forensic Science; Leadership, Governance and Ethics; Professional Development and Knowledge Exchange; Transnational and Public Order Policing; Urban Intelligence and Informatics; Victimology and Domestic Violence; Serious and Organised Crime and Intelligence Led policing.
