Policing Studies

Our specialities and opportunities

The Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing at LJMU provides students with a chance to gain relevant policing experience as part of their degree. Our innovative and thought-provoking modules both reflect and challenge current policing practices and debates, giving students a chance to form their own opinions and approaches.

Students benefit from being taught by lecturers with both academic and professional backgrounds in policing, as well as the chance to attend regular career workshops and symposiums, delivered by police officers and other career specialists. Our aim is to fully prepare our students for a career in policing and educate them fully in a range of areas – including security, risk management, and criminal justice as a whole. There are also opportunities for students to gain some hands-on experience of policing, with a chance to work as Special Police Constables on a volunteer basis.
