BA (Hons) Applied Investigation allows you to explore the changing nature of the policing environment and examine the knowledge, skills and behaviours that are required in order to adapt and respond to these changes.
You’ll critically reflect on your skills and knowledge within the context of various theories of workplace learning, and research into a specific topic of operational practice that is relevant to your workplace and which is of national significance.
This is the only course in the UK to provide a university degree in Applied Investigation for investigators who can demonstrate competence at PIP (Professionalising Investigation Programme) Level 2 or equivalent.
