School:Charles Sturt University
Faculty:School of Distance Education
Degree:Bachelor; Online; Distance
Field of Study:Criminal Justice/Police Science
Description:The Bachelor of Policing is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of law enforcement personnel. The content of the program is structured to be directly relevant to current policing activities across a wide range of jurisdictions, and policing specialties. The course aims to assist and prepare participants to be able to undertake independent critical reflection on policing policy and practice, and apply the results of research in policing to professional practice.

Whilst it is recognized that law enforcement organizations supply a range of training for their personnel, the Bachelor of Policing content goes beyond and outside that level of training. The course challenges participants to critically and independently analyze their work practices and decisions, particularly in regard to current and emerging police practice. The ability to consider numerous and new options, and to gather logical evidence and support for decisions and actions, is actively encouraged in the programs. Those qualities are recognized as part of the rapidly growing expectations placed upon law enforcement practitioners by both their organizations, and the communities in which they serve.
