City College Norwich is launching an innovative academic and professional programme to support students seeking a career in policing from September 2021, subject to validation by the College of Policing. The course will be run at Easton College.

This course is aligned to the National Policing Curriculum, where you will cultivate a strong grounding in the theory and practice of policing, the criminal justice system and crime matters necessary to start your police career. The course will help you develop critical thinking skills required to understand the complex and constantly changing world that the police and policing operate within.

You will explore areas such as:

  • policing legislation and procedures
  • criminal investigations
  • policing communities
  • response and road policing
  • evidence-based policing and research methods.

Successful completion of this programme does not guarantee recruitment as a trainee police constable. However, this programme is not just for potential police recruits but is suitable for any person interested in policing issues.
