**Summary**: Including an integrated foundation year if you don’t have the appropriate subjects or grades for direct entry to the first year, this BSc (Hons) Policing degree programme develops the broad themes of contemporary policing, including the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP), investigative procedures, criminal law and criminal justice with options to focus on the applications of intelligence, counter terrorism, international concepts of policing or fingerprint analysis. **Course details**: With applications to study from across the UK, the programme is taught by staff with professional policing experience and expertise, the programme equips you with the knowledge and understanding you need to apply to join the police service in the role of police officer, either as a new police officer or as a future leader of policing through direct entry or fast track schemes. At a broader level, you will gain the required knowledge and understanding to make an application to work as police staff across the UK (such as civilian investigators, detention officers, fingerprint trainees), within the broader intelligence community (such as analysts or with the intelligence services) or within the military police. Although successful completion of the BSc (Hons) Policing and the employability focused Certificate in Knowledge of Policing (CKP) cannot guarantee your recruitment by the police service, it will equip you with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to make you a competitive applicant for the service. It will also provide evidence and experience to support both your initial application and future career development. It should be noted that all candidates wishing to join the police service will also need to pass medical and fitness tests as well as background and security checks and undertake a series of assessments, tests and interviews appropriate to the role.
