The College of Policing has announced that with effect from 2020, all new officers will need to be educated to degree level in order to join the police force. This degree is an employment-related higher qualification targeted at those seeking to establish a career in the Police Service, Councils, Probation Services, National Crime Agency or more general public services. This Policing Degree provides you with an academic understanding and practical application of policing and also serves as an introduction to a career in the Police, Border Force and the Criminal Justice System. The programme emphasises the diversity of the policing role and draws upon a variety of contexts in which policing is discussed and analysed.
