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 suite of 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.
To meet the increasing demand for new research, the Centre is offering excellent postgraduate research opportunities to complement our multi-disciplinary agenda and impact-led teaching. Our particular areas of strength include:
  • transnational and public order policing
  • serious organised crime
  • victimology and domestic violence
