Policing HND

A career with the Police goes far beyond interviewing suspects and making arrests. Police officers get involved in investigative work, giving evidence in court, controlling traffic or large crowds at events, promoting personal safety, and crime prevention. No matter what aspect of policing most motivates you, our trainers are former police officers with extensive experience and can help you to enter the regular Police Force with the successful completion of our HND in Policing. You will learn about criminal law, police procedures, road policing, use of technology, and equality and diversity. Assignments will include simulated policing scenarios where you will get the chance to try out your practical and investigative skills.

This course is ideal for those looking to join the police force as a regular office and for those interested in other public protection roles such as Border Force, G4S, Police Staff and investigative roles in organisations such as the Probation Service, and Child Services.
