About

The Policing Studies with Foundation Year (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University is an accredited foundation programme designed and developed with Merseyside Police, the College of Policing and Skills for Justice.

Overview

The Policing Studies with Foundation Year (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University programme takes students on a critical exploration of contemporary policing issues as they develop skills and prepare for their professional practice.

Police forces are powerful institutions that routinely engage with diverse communities and social groups. It is this very public aspect of policing which provides the ongoing context for study and makes for a heated and lively debate.
