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.
