Expertise drawn from across the University

The Institute is based within the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences, but draws upon an interdisciplinary network of expertise across the University, including forensics, computing, leadership, engineering, architecture, and more.

We are distinctive in the following ways:

  • We offer a whole-country police education solution
  • We are one of the only institutes in the world to run academic programmes entirely in the local language of policing and in the context of Islamic culture
  • We have been commissioned to provide independent inspection of custody units
  • All of our staff have worked in the policing profession throughout their careers, at every level 
  • Our approach combines high levels of practical training with research-informed academic theory.

Our approach to police education

We believe policing should be recognised as a global responsibility and an international profession. We seek out the best practice in policing, wherever it may be in the world, and we recognise that different cultures, countries and geographies require different policing approaches.

We also see policing education in a holistic sense, including physical and psychological fitness, as well as legal and criminological knowledge.
